Closing Arguments in Johnny Depp Defamation Trial Underway

Closing arguments in the Johnny Depp defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard are currently underway. Each side will have about two hours to summarize their case before the jury reaches a verdict. Depp is suing Heard for $50 million over a December 2018 op-ed she wrote in The Washington Post describing herself as a ‘public figure representing domestic abuse’. Heard filed a $100 million counterclaim against Depp after his lawyer called her allegations a hoax.
