The decision came five days after Johnny and Amber’s legal parties made their closing statements on May 27, 2022. After a final argument, the judge deliberately ruled that Amber had insulted Johnny in his 2018 Washington Post article. After more than 12 hours of negotiations outside closed doors, the decision was reached and read aloud in a court hearing in Fairfax County, Virginia on June 1, 2022. Depp was not present at the hearing and was watching from the United Kingdom, where he was playing rock concerts with Jeff. Beck as of May 30, 2022. After the court adjournment, Listen to his lawyers and immediately left the court. His legal team and family followed him.
The names of the seven-judge judge will remain closed for at least one year. The judge had five men and two women. The decision was scheduled to be read at 3 p.m. ET, however, the judge found that the judges forgot to fill out the forms for the damages, so they were sent back to the courtroom to fill out the paperwork, resulting in delays in the trial.
Kimberly Lau, a lawyer in Warsaw Burstein who specializes in cup and slander cases, told Sky News before the announcement that the Johnny and Amber trial would be fraudulent. He said both sides did an excellent job of producing the best of each other and that would make the case a challenge, especially for the judges that both trained actors have the job of making the audience believe that they are, the role they play. The evidence of the witnesses and the evidence of the documents will be even more important for the judges to decide who is really telling the truth and who is likely to be acting in a certain way.
In addition, he said, having a minority judge, in this case, makes a huge difference in the negotiation process. One person’s opinion is not enough and all seven should agree. And although the judges, unlike the judges, already understand the law, the judges include a few people whose life experiences can influence how they view and evaluate evidence in a case.
