Verdict in Johnny Depp v. Amber Heard Defamation Case

Experts in the law are talking about the verdict in Johnny Depp's lawsuit against Amber Heard for libel.

The 58-year-old actor won all three defamation claims in the case on Wednesday, and the jury gave him $15 million in damages.

In Heard's countersuit against Depp, he was found to have hurt her reputation in one of three ways.

Depp sued Heard, who is 36 years old, for $50 million in damages. He said she slandered him when she wrote an op-ed in 2018 about coming forward with domestic abuse claims, but she didn't name him.

Heard filed a countersuit, asking for $100 million in damages. She said Depp led a campaign to hurt her career and reputation by calling her and her claims "fake" and "a hoax."
