The high-profile trial resumes after a week-long hiatus due to a court conference. The jury has already heard testimonies for four weeks.
Heard has already spent two days on the witness stand and has still not been cross-examined by Depp’s lawyers.
Amber Heard accuses Johnny Depp of violent sexual assault with a liquor bottle
Heard told jurors she suffered multiple physical and sexual abuses before and during her brief marriage to Depp, which lasted from 2015 to 2016. Depp has previously testified and denied he ever hit Heard.
Depp is suing Heard in Fairfax County Circuit Court for defamation over an op-ed she wrote in the Washington Post in which she describes herself as “a public figure who depicts domestic violence.” His lawyers say he was defamed by the 2018 article, although his name was never mentioned.
