Jurors in Virginia on Wednesday ruled in favour of actor Johnny Depp, in the libel case brought by the actor against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
The seven-person civil jury had to come to a unanimous decision to reach each verdict. They deliberated for nearly 12 hours over three days.
Depp had filed a $50 million lawsuit against Heard, arguing that she defamed him in an op-ed for the Washington Post. Jury members found Depp should be awarded more than $10 million in damages.
Nevertheless, the jury also found in favour of Heard in some aspects of her counterclaim which said she was defamed by Depp’s lawyer when he called her abuse allegations a hoax. The jury ruled that Heard should receive $2 million .
