‘It’s a terrible message. It’s a failure, a significant failure because that’s exactly what it means, ‘Bredhoft said of the verdict.

“Unless you pull out your phone and you video your wife or your significant partner hitting you, in fact, you won’t be believed.”

The lawyer insisted that the jury in the case was influenced by public opinion including social media, despite strict orders from the judge not to read anything about the case out of court.

‘In no way could they be affected. It was awful. It was really, really bad, ‘Bredhoft said of public sentiment against Heard in the case. ‘It’s like the Roman Colosseum, how they looked at this whole case.’

Bredhoft said Depp’s legal team had tried to “demonize amber and suppress the evidence”.

“We had huge evidence suppressed in this case, which was in the UK case,” she said, referring to Depp’s libel lawsuit against the Sun, which he lost. ‘In the UK case when it came in, Amber won, Mr Depp lost.’

Asked if the verdict meant the jury simply didn’t believe Heard, Bredhoft doubled down, replying, “That’s because she was demonized here.”

“In this court a number of things were allowed that should not be allowed and it confused the jury,” she said.

Bredhoft said Heard felt the “burden” of Wednesday’s verdict.

‘One of the first things she said was that I was very sorry for all those women out there. This is a failure. For all women in and out of court. And she feels – she feels the burden of that, ‘said the lawyer.

The verdicts put an end to a televised lawsuit that Depp hoped would help restore its reputation, even though it had become a spectacle that offered a window into a corrupt and dysfunctional marriage.

Heard, who was stoic in court while the verdict was being read, said she was heartbroken.

– I’m even more disappointed with what this verdict means to other women. It is a failure. It turns the clock back to a time when a woman who spoke and spoke honestly could be publicly humiliated. It rejects the idea that violence against women should be taken seriously, ‘she said in a statement posted on her Twitter account.

Depp, who was not in court on Wednesday, said “the jury gave me back my life. I’m really humiliated.”

“I hope that my search for the truth to be told will have helped others, men or women who have found themselves in my situation, and that those who support them will never give up,” he said in a statement posted to Instagram.

Depp sued Heard over defamation in Fairfax County Circuit Court over a December 2018 opinion piece she wrote in The Washington Post describing herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse.” His lawyers said he was slandered by the article even though it never mentioned his name.

The jury found Depp’s favor on all three of his claims related to specific statements in the 2018 piece.
