As the case that gripped the world comes to a close, jurors involved in the Johnny Depp defamation trial have been given a long sheet full of 42 complicated questions that they must answer before reaching a verdict.
According to local media reports, the document was recently made public by the Fairfax Federal Court and it shows a sheet comprises of 24 questions in relation to Johnny Depp’s starting claims. At the same time, there are a further 18 questions in regards to Amber Heard’s counterclaims for the case.
That makes for a total sum of 42 questions that need to be answered in due time before a final verdict in the high-profile case can be reached and announced.
The document comprises eight long pages and that means the jury needs to focus on a dozen different matters before they can actually award one part as the victorious one over the other, explained experts.
The source claims the verdict will reportedly be delivered this week but it’s not going to be an easy deciding affair for the jury members who will need to sit down and deliberate for hours, considering the amount of evidence, testimonies, cross-examinations, and witnesses that have popped up along the way.
There is also a section in the high profile document that is related to the damages that must be decided for both Johnny Depp and Amber Heard and if there would be any punitive damages included in the verdict too.
On Friday, we saw a series of strong closing arguments being put forward by both legal sides but many on social media felt team Johnny Depp was in the lead in that regard too.
After six long and tiring weeks of drama being aired to the public, the jury has returned to deliberate about the former couple’s four-year-long relationship and all the abuse claims that have been administered by each party.
