and Johnny Depp liable for defaming him in an op-ed published in the Washington Post.
In total, the jury awarded Depp $15 million in damages, while Heard $2 million.
Depp was found to be entitled to $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages
but the judge ruled that punitive damages were limited to $350,000 by state law
meaning his total award would total $10.35 million.
Heard said in an Instagram and Twitter post, "The disappointment I feel today is beyond words.
" Depp said in an Instagram post, "the jury gave me my life back."
Despite the dramatic trial that exposed the troubled marriage between the stars, the verdict marked the end of the civil suit.
Depp claims that she defamed him by writing an op-ed in the Washington Post in December 2018 describing herself as "a public figure representing domestic abuse."
Depp's attorney defamed Heard by calling her abuse allegations a hoax, and she countersued for $100 million.
