In June, Johnny Depp won defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard. The jury has ruled in favor of Johnny Depp in the high-profile defamation lawsuit on June 2. The seven-member jury ordered Heard to pay Depp $15 million in damages.

They awarded $10 million to the Pirates of The Caribbean Sea Star in compensatory damages while $5 million was awarded in punitive damages in the defamation suit.

But punitive damages awarded to Depp was reduced to $350,000, as the state has a statutory cap and his total damages amounted to $10.4 million.
