A jury has resumed deliberations after a sensational six-week trial to resolve libel claims by Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard over their unstable and unhappy marriage.

The seven-person civil jury heard oral argument on Friday and deliberated for about two hours before heading out for the Memorial Day long weekend. Jurors resumed deliberations in Fairfax County Circuit Court just after 9 a.m. Tuesday.

Depp is suing Heard for $50 million, accusing her of defaming him with a 2018 op-ed she wrote describing herself as “a public figure representing domestic violence.” Heard has filed a $100 million counterclaim against the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star after his attorney called his claims a hoax. Each accuses the other of destroying his career.

The testimony included a litany of grim details about their short marriage. Heard testified that Depp physically or sexually assaulted her more than a dozen times. During his testimony, Depp said he never hit Heard, that she concocted the abuse allegations, and that she was the one who physically attacked him on multiple occasions.

During closing arguments, both sides told the jury that a verdict in their favor would bring their clients back to life.
