    Is Depp in the court?
    “Blessed are the forgetful, for they get the better even of their blunders.”

    Comment


      Is the judge repeating alot of the charges/results?

      Comment


        They haven't finished the announcements yet, so don't know damages (which could be zero), but from the outside it seems like it was her legal team that lost this. They seem to have been consistently woeful.

              Thats brutal though. $15m is presumably the same as being wiped out?

                Got $2m back for being counter-defamed. So only a net loss of $13m.

                I presume you would have loads of stuff ringfenced in pensions and family home, so you'd only lose the 'spare cash' and still be grand.

                  And the punitive damages are capped at 350k, so that's another 4.65m back. I suppose a lot depends on what work she may get in the future.

                    Mr Depp will certainly be partying at whatever gig he is at tonight.

                      googling her NW, seems to be between 2.5-8m

                        They may negotiate the final payment anyway.

                          Its her future earning power which is presumably shot. Realistically she didn't expand her fanbase over the trial.

                            Was sure i heard that as well, but all the media outlets seem to be running with $15m

                                Oh yeah shes utterly fucked. Wouldnt get a walk in part on.Fair City at this stage!
                                Wonder how they portray her now will she double down on the wronged victim helpless against the might of the malevolent patriarchy.

                                Shes a real piece of work. Watched more of that trial.than I thought I would. The skill of the JD team!

                                Dont know if you saw the AH expert witness ..Dr Spiegel a psychiatrist who rendered an opinion on "processing speed" based on movies he saw and a few interviews of JD
                                His cross exam was surreal!

                                  Doubt 15m will wipe her out long term . Deffo get some work. Ive never heard of her before this now i might watch out of curiosity. Fame is money . She'll play the victim even more . The metoo gang will be there for her.

                                            Her already filmed part of aquaman 2 is being cut or recast.
                                            other than that leading to a few cameos in other DC movies she hasn't got any major movie coming up, or had a proper hit since maybe Zombieland over ten years ago.

                                                    I’d trust the British judge who found that Depp assaulted Heard over whatever bunch of starfucking yokels made up the jury in case just finished- they’ll be all over the media soon enough looking their 5 mins and bit of coin- what a mess

                                                      Although to say fair play to Depp- he never went stooped as low as acting in a Marvel movie- he gets credit for that

                                                        Different laws around defamation in both countries, I guess. But also the jury trial is the default trial method for a reason. It wipes out individual bias, such as a single judge might express.

                                                                  This was a defamation case against Heard directly. I’d assume that the charges and thresholds are entirely different. It’s entirely possible that the result in both trials was correct within their context.

                                                                  I didn’t see much, other than the snippets in various media. I’d trust the people in the room to have a much better overall view. But from what I did see, it didn’t paint Heard in a good light. She contracted her own testimony. Got caught in a few lies, including more or less proving she lied in British court.

                                                                  They most likely had an volatile relationship. But if was proven she exaggerated and fabricated events in order to damage his reputation. Well that’s probably defamation

                                                                          Many interesting aspects to the case. The fact that is played out on TV, like the OJ trial, gave us all a rare opportunity to witness what go's on in a real courtroom in real time. No need for LA Law, Law and Order, Judge Judy or to hang around the courts in person.

                                                                          This was a case of what happens when relationships turn toxic. We are all in relationships so can easily become interested in what happens in extreme cases. Hopefully to learn a lesson and not just for gratuitous voyeurism. Smart people learn from their mistakes, wise people from the mistakes of others.

                                                                          It kinda captured the zeitgeist in that it touched on many topical issues like metoo, the cult of celebrity, social media and influencing, violence against women, toxic masculinity and emasculation culture.

                                                                          To me it seemed one was as bad as the other. Depp probably did the things he was accused of. Should he get a pass because she was just as bad?

                                                                          What I find most shocking is the backlash against Heard on social media. She is being destroyed in so many memes that I suspect it's orchestrated or fed by Depp's team or supporters. The jury members would have access to all of this.

                                                                          The death of #MeToo?

                                                                                              “I had the rare vantage point of seeing, in real time, how institutions protect men accused of abuse.”

Can laypeople ever truly appreciate or understand the law enough, in these areas, to make a fair judgement. I prefer the way it was done in the UK where a judge rules and justifies the ruling.

Smart people learn from their mistakes, wise people from the mistakes of others.

                                                                                                It kinda captured the zeitgeist in that it touched on many topical issues like metoo, the cult of celebrity, social media and influencing, violence against women, toxic masculinity and emasculation culture.

                                                                                                To me it seemed one was as bad as the other. Depp probably did the things he was accused of. Should he get a pass because she was just as bad?

                                                                                                What I find most shocking is the backlash against Heard on social media. She is being destroyed in so many memes that I suspect it's orchestrated or fed by Depp's team or supporters. The jury members would have access to all of this.
                                                                                                There’s definitely an element of orchestrated social media. But seemed to be a lot of amateur analysts.
                                                                                                I guess that social media now, like the amateur detective stuff when that girl went missing/was murdered.

Again no picture of that.

                                                                                                    Pictures provided included a duplicate ..1 with red saturation so face looked inflamed..the other perfectly normal....identical pictures with same date and time stamp.

RECI must notify ESBN of solar panel installation.
