The trial was, I believe, technically about Heard's right to mention that she had been domestically abused. I'm unsure if she referred to Depp by name, but in any event that's what she was taken to court for. She lost, which is a pretty chilling precedent even if they're both garbage people.What did Depp get out of this trial? (I suppose sympathy/cancelling the old impression that he was violent with Heard?)
Anyway, Heard looks better than Depp so (since I have no other interest here) I guess I support her

Court of public opinion. That's really it. Depp got canned across the industry after being accused. It's why he picked Virginia for the case: it is legal to stream the proceedings there, but nowhere else. This has likely made him employable again at or near his previous standard.
I will note finally that to my knowledge Depp has made no effort whatsoever to get his devoted online fans to stop their hideous misogynistic harassment of Heard, which is another serious mark against him in my book.
