Depp sued Heard for $ 50 million in the 2018 Washington Post, in which he called himself a “public figure representing domestic abuse” and claimed he had lost his job. Heard sued for $ 100 million for defamation.
“On May 27, 2016, Ms Heard entered the courtroom in Los Angeles, California, without receiving any notice against Mr. Depp, and a restraining order was issued against Depp, who escaped from domestic abuse at the hands of Mr. Depp,” Vasquez said. “Today, exactly six years later, on May 27, 2022, we are telling the world that Mr. Depp is not an abuser and asking him to return his life to Mr. Depp.”
Heard’s attorneys Elaine Bradhoft and Ben Rottenborough presented their final arguments to the jury.
“The verdict against Amber sends the message that no matter what you do as an abuser here, you always have to do more,” Rottenborn said. “Whatever you document, you should always document more. No matter who you tell, you should always tell more people. No matter how honest you are about your own shortcomings and your own shortcomings, you should be. People deserve to believe you. Don’t send that message. “
Rottenborn said there were “more” facts showing that Depp Heard had been abused.
Jurors hear 45-minute denial closing arguments before beginning arguments.
Judge Penny Ascart began the day by presenting the jury with instructions on how to proceed.
“You should not base your judgment in any way on the basis of sympathy, biased speculation or speculation,” Asgaret said. “Your judgment should be based solely on the evidence and instructions of the court. Your judgment should be based on the facts you find and the law you see in all of these instructions.”
