Amber Heard or Johnny Depp? Who will deserve damages, seven jurors in Virginia court will decide on May 27

Johnny Depp-Amber Heard’s ongoing defamation trials are making headlines these days. However, after weeks of accusations from both sides, the outcome of the case will be decided by seven jurors on May 27 followed by closing arguments from both parties’ legal team.

The New York Postrecently reported that a source close to Heard’s team stated, “The jury is going to determine damages for both the claim and the counterclaim.”

Moreover, they told the publication that there could be a possibility jurors would not award damages to either party.

It is pertinent to mention that since this is a civil case, so no one will face criminal charges or prison.

Nevertheless, given a hypothetical situation, Depp, who had gained public support as the trial began, might win this defamation case against Heard so he would be awarded a “substantial amount of money”.

Halim Dhanidina, a criminal defense attorney and former California judge, noted that anytime a defamation lawsuit is successful, “it has a chilling effect on speech” in case of alleged victims who would be scared to come forward.

“There has always been a chilling effect for victims to come forward and speak out against institutions or entities or people with power because they feel like their world could come crashing down on them,” she told the publication.

Dhanidina also mentioned that people would have to think twice before making any statement provided Depp win the case.

“I’m sure there are people out there who would think twice about making statements if those statements could expose them to legal liability,” she concluded.

Meanwhile, the trial is on a one-week break and proceedings are set to resume on May 16.

Adding up to’s view, Buck Flanagan, a renowned Quora writer and director made a careful review of the ongoing trial, he highlighted some key piece of evidence in the Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard trial by pointing out evidences which expose Ms. Heard as the aggressor.
He made reference to the existence of an audio recording of Ms. Heard admitting to physically abusing Mr. Depp and then berating him for having the nerve to meekly complain.

When Johnny Depp returns to court next month to fight assault allegations, it will likely not become a spectacle reminiscent of his recent defamation trial, as requests for the proceedings to be televised have been denied.

During his six-week defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard, viewers were able to tune in on a daily basis to catch all of the drama live as it was broadcast from Virginia’s Fairfax County Circuit Court.

This time around, Depp will face film crew member Gregg “Rocky” Brooks, who has accused the actor of punching him in the chest during a dispute on the Los Angeles set of the actor’s film City of Lies in April 2017. However, fans hoping for a front-row seat to the proceedings from the convenience of their homes will be disappointed to learn that this trial will not be a repeat performance of Depp’s previous trial in that regard.

The Law & Crime Network, which live-streamed Depp’s defamation trial, said that its request submitted to Los Angeles County Superior Court for permission to broadcast the trial when it begins on July 25 has been denied.

The reasoning around permitting  or denying requests to broadcast courtroom proceedings for each case is different. Penney Azcarate, the chief judge of the Fairfax County Circuit Court, granted permission for Court TV to operate two pool cameras in the courtroom for the Depp-Heard trial.

During a pre-trial hearing in February, Heard’s team had tried unsuccessfully to exclude cameras from the courtroom, with the Aquaman star’s lawyer, Elaine Bredehoft, expressing concern of interest from “anti-Amber networks,” according to Variety.

Ben Chew, one of the attorneys representing Depp, said that his client “believes in transparency” as he pushed for the inclusion of cameras during proceedings. In the end, Azcarate said that she had been inundated with media requests and felt a responsibility to keep the courtroom proceedings open to observers.

The judge also stated that not allowing cameras could lead to reporters descending on the courthouse anyway, leading to a potentially hazardous situation.

“I don’t see any good cause not to do it,” Azcarate said ahead of the trial.
