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.
