To start off, While the jury asked both parties to pay huge amounts why do we consider this a win for Depp?

Arrow

Well, First of all, According to the American legal system, The jury is allowed to determine the amount for damages based on facts.

Arrow

While Heard was informed to pay $15 million in total, There’s a catch to it.

Arrow

This is a sum of compensatory and punitive amounts. So, In reality, Heard was ordered to pay $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million as punitive.

On the other hand, Depp was also ordered to pay a total of $2 million but why did he win?

Arrow

It’s not because the amount was low.

Arrow

According to the jury, Depp was ordered to pay $2 million for compensatory damages alone and there were no punitive charges against him.

Arrow

This leads to the verdict that Johnny Depp indeed won the defamation case as the court did seem necessary to punish him.

Arrow

While it may be $15 million in damage for Heard, The cost of running a legal team will also be expensive.
