FAIRFAX, Virginia – Court watchers waiting outside the Johnny Depp-Amber Heard libel trial responded to the jury verdict announced on Wednesday.
“Shock, happiness,” one woman, Nuha, told Fox News as she wiped away tears. “I never thought he would win, so it’s unbelievable.”
The jury awarded Depp more than $10 million in the defamation lawsuit he filed against his ex-wife. The Pirates of the Caribbean star said Heard, who was awarded $2 million for her own charges, defamed him when she wrote in a 2018 op-ed that she was a victim of domestic abuse.
