The multi-million dollar lawsuit that Hollywood star Johnny Depp opened with Amber Heard, whom he met on the set of the movie ‘The Rum Diary’ in 2011 and divorced after nearly two years of marriage, was concluded on June 1.
WILL PAY MILLIONS OF DOLLAR COMPENSATION
In a unanimous decision, the Jury decided that Heard had slandered his ex-wife Depp and that Heard must pay Depp an additional $5 million in compensatory damages, in addition to the $10 million in punitive damages. However, the figure was later reduced from $5 million to $350,000, which is the state of Virginia’s limit for such compensation.
In addition, the jurors did not believe Heard’s statements regarding his marriage and ruled that Heard had acted in “bad faith”, deciding that his allegations had tarnished not only Depp but other people as well.
The jury accepted one of the charges that Herad also defamed Depp’s lawyer, and decided that Depp should pay Heard $2 million in damages. Heard and Depp have filed a mutual appeal against these decisions recently.
