“And six years later, the jury gave me my life back. I am truly humbled,” shared Depp, who was in the U.K. for work obligations when the verdict was read. “From the very beginning, the goal of bringing this case was to reveal the truth, regardless of the outcome. Speaking the truth was something that I owed to my children and to all those who have remained steadfast in their support of me. I feel at peace knowing I have finally accomplished that.”

A jury in Virginia awarded Depp $15 million in damages, though the judge presiding over the case later reduced punitive damages to the state’s legal limit of $350,000—making the total damages awarded almost $10.4 million. Heard, who previously filed a $100 million countersuit against Depp over an alleged “online smear campaign,” was awarded $2 million in compensatory damages.

Heard’s attorney, Elaine Charlson Bredehoft, recently said that her client “absolutely” plans to appeal the jury’s verdict.

“She has some excellent grounds for it,” Bredehoft told Today on June 2. “There was so much evidence that did not come in.”
