Jury finds both Amber Heard and Johnny Depp liable for defamation

The jury has reached a verdict in the civil defamation cases between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, spokespeople for both parties told CNN.

A jury has found both Amber Heard and Johnny Depp liable for defamation in their lawsuits against each other.

Depp sued Heard, his ex-wife, for defamation over a 2018 op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post in which she described herself as a "public figure representing domestic abuse." Though Depp was not named in the article, he claims it cost him lucrative acting roles. Heard countersued her ex-husband for defamation over statements Depp's attorney made about her abuse claims.
