Johnny Depp-Amber Heard’s defamation judge officially announced the Jury Trial Award on Friday. The work she wrote.
Judge Penny Azkarate issued a ruling order in court records after a brief hearing in the Circuit Court of Fairfax County, Virginia.
She also ordered Depp to pay $ 2 million. This is the jury’s award for her counterclaim that Haad was defamed by one of Depp’s lawyers.
The order was formal after the jury announced the verdict on June 1. During a television trial closely tracked on social media, the couple stood primarily on Depp’s side after a sensational trial that revealed details of a short marriage.
In a December 2018 article in The Washington Post, Depp accused Hard of describing himself as a “public figure representing domestic violence.”
The jury has ruled in favor of Depp on all three of his claims related to a particular statement in the 2018 work.
The jury decided that Depp should receive $ 10 million in compensatory damages and $ 5 million in punitive damages, but the judge decided that punitive damages would be 35 under state limits. Reduced to $ 10,000.
She said she would appeal the verdict.
At a hearing on Friday, the judge said that if Heard appealed, he would have to submit a full deposit of $ 10.35 million in prize money while the appeal was pending. This is a common practice.
According to the judge’s order, both awards are subject to an annual interest rate of 6 percent.
