1. The jury is still out in Johnny Depp’s $50 million defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard.
In their first full day of deliberations, jurors asked the judge how they should weigh the headline in Amber’s “Washington Post” op-ed.
The headline for the online version of the December 2018 piece read, “I Spoke Up Against Sexual Violence — And Faced Our Culture’s Wrath. That Has To Change.”
That headline is one of three statements on the jury verdict forms that they have to weigh in determining whether to rule for Johnny.
Judge Penney Azcarate said that the jurors were wondering if they should consider whether the headline was defamatory or whether that should be connected to the “content of the statement, everything in the op-ed.”
She said that the clear that the title is the statement.
The jury also has to rule on Amber’s $100 million defamation countersuit.
Deliberations continue today.
