Verdict for Johnny Depp v. Amber Heard trial to be announced TODAY at 3:00 p.m. EST

The jury has reached a verdict in the Johnny Depp v. Amber Heard defamation trial, and it will be announced this afternoon.

It has just been revealed that the jury in the Johnny Depp v. Amber Heard defamation trial that took place over six weeks in Fairfax County, Virginia, has reached a verdict in what some are calling “the trial of the century.” Their findings will be announced today at 3:00 p.m. EST.

Jurors began deliberating on Friday, spending only two hours in deliberations before breaking for the holiday weekend. They reconvened on Tuesday, spending the entire day in deliberations, and returned again on Wednesday morning to continue their efforts.

Johnny Depp will reportedly not be in Virginia for the reading of the verdict, as he is in the U.K. at this time performing in a series of concerts with guitarist Jeff Beck.

Amber Heard, however, will be present in the courtroom at the time the verdict is read.

DisneyDining has been following the trial since April 11, and when the verdict is announced, you will be able to read about it here, including details about the jury’s findings.

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
