The jury of the court found out that statements made by Amber Heard against Johnny were false and some accusations were not fully proven.
After weeks of back and forth in the courtroom, the actor and ex-husband of Amber have finally won the defamation case.
Amber Heard also counter-sued Johnny for 100 million dollars for calling her a liar.
At the end of the six-week-long trial, Johnny Depp walked away with 10 million in compensation and 5 million in punitive damages. While Amber walked away from court with 2 million Dollars.
It was also determined during the trial that Johnny Depp defamed Amber Heard – but it was through his attorney, Adam Waldman, and only on one of three counts.
Amber Heard has since expressed her disappointment in the justice system saying that It is a setback for women fighting to end violence against women.
“It sets back the clock to a time when a woman who spoke up and spoke out could be publicly shamed and humiliated”
