A jury has reached a verdict in the Johnny Depp, Amber Heard trial! The jury found that Amber Heard defamed Johnny Depp. All of the statements were made with a “yes” answer. The jury awarded Depp $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. update: The judge reduced the $5 million punitive damage award for Johnny, because Virginia law caps punitive damages in these case at $350,000.
