Depp-Heard jury discharged till Tuesday without a verdict

The jury in the Johnny Depp-Amber Heard defamation trial was excused by Judge Penney Azcarate for the holiday weekend

No judgement was reached on Friday. It is expected that the jury will return to the case on Tuesday morning to begin deliberations by 9 a.m.

After six weeks of testimony, the closing arguments were concluded earlier today.

When Heard penned an op-ed in The Washington Post in 2018 referring to herself as a public figure representing domestic violence, Depp, 58, sued for $50 million.

All claims of abuse have been refuted by Johnny Depp. After Depp's lawyer Adam Waldman termed her charges a fraud, Heard countersued for $100 million.

A verdict may only be rendered if all seven members of the jury agree.

At the same time, they will rule on both Depp's suit and Heard's counterclaim.
