With regards to the result of the Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard trial, it’s not as simple as a win for him or a win for her. Here, we outline some potential results of this trial, which will soon reach its conclusion.
Depp wins and is awarded 50m dollars
One possible result is that Depp convinces the jury he was defamed and they agree that he should be paid pay compensation to the tune of 50m dollars.
Depp wins and is awarded less than 50m dollars
It is also possible that the jury sides with Depp, however, decides he doesn’t deserve the full 50m dollars that he is claiming. That would assist with clearing his name in the court of public opinion too, so it would be a win, yet not a full one.
Heard wins and is awarded 100m dollars
She countersued Depp for 100m dollars and one chance is that she is awarded that full amount, in spite of the fact that her testimony has yet to explain how she reached that figure.
Heard wins and is awarded less than 100m dollars
Another situation is that Heard wins however that the jury believes the 100m figure to be too high, rather awarding the actress a lesser amount.
Neither party is awarded damages
Another situation that could be possible is that neither side is awarded any damages by the jury.. This would leave the matter unsettled in the court of public opinion and probably satisfy neither Depp nor Heard.
