Everything that’s happened in court

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s legal battle continues as the divorced movie stars face off in a $50 million (or more) libel trial.

The trial began April 11 in Fairfax County, Virginia, outside Washington, D.C., and is broadcasting live.

Depp, 58, is suing Heard, 36, for $50 million, alleging she defamed him in an opinion column she published in The Washington Post (which is printed in Fairfax County) in December 2018. In the column, she claimed to be a victim of domestic abuse. 

Heard took the stand for the first time Wednesday, speaking through tears as she described the first time she alleges Depp turned violent against her. “I will never forget it. It changed my life,” Heard told the jury, recalling Depp allegedly slapping her “across the face.”
