The trial has been live-streaming and I’m pretty convinced 90% of the people I know have been tuning in to watch.

If you haven’t been paying attention, Johnny Depp is suing Amber Heard for $50 million dollars for defamation due to an op-ed she wrote for the Washington Post back in 2018.

Amber Heard is countersuing for $100 million dollars, saying that Johnny Depp defamed her when he said she was lying about him abusing her.

Closing arguments are set for Friday morning, May 27th, 2022.

Amber Heard requested in a motion on May 16th, 2022, that the identities of the jurors on the trial be sealed for one year according to the New York Post.

Her request was granted by Judge Penney Azcarate, and she signed off on the motion in an order on May 18th, 2022.

the names of all jurors shall remain sealed for one year following the conclusion of the trial

The jury on the defamation trial consists of 6 men and 3 women.

It is believed that this motion was requested and granted due to some of Johnny’s over-the-top fans, some even threatening Amber’s life.

Agreed as to the proposed relief but objecting to and not agreeing to [the] characterizations as to Mr. Depp’s interactions with his fans, etc.

Apparently, one fan allegedly wrote online, “I Can’t Wait For The Day I Kill Amber Heard.”… yikes!

You know, I know she isn’t a good person… but death threats y’all? Not cool.
