Verdict in Johnny Depp, Amber Heard's libel trial stalled, jury to return Wednesday

A jury finished a second day of deliberations Tuesday without reaching a verdict in the defamation claims of Johnny Depp and ex-wife Amber Heard 

over their volatile and unhappy marriage. The seven-person civil jury resumed deliberations Tuesday morning. After

hearing closing arguments and deliberating for about two hours Friday, the jury was excused for the long Memorial Day weekend by Judge Penney Azcarate. 

Jurors deliberated for seven hours on Tuesday, and they are scheduled to resume deliberations Wednesday in Fairfax County 

Circuit Court. Judge Azcarate is expected to read the verdict when it is reached. 

Depp is suing Heard for $50 million, accusing her of libeling him with a 2018 op-ed she wrote describing herself as "a public figure representing domestic abuse." 

Heard filed a $100 million counterclaim against the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star after his lawyer called her allegations a hoax. Each accuses the other of destroying their career.
