Well, my Sidebar friends, we are on verdict watch. The jury could come back as early as Tuesday. What do we think the verdict will be. I am super pissed that we lost juror H/8 she was the best note taker and was the most serious according to those in the courtroom. Is it wrong to hope one of the other jurors got salmonella or whose weekend trip ended with their flight getting canceled? It’s been a long journey and so much fun in comments. Hopefully we can all get involved in a new trial soon. But, not too soon. I still haven’t caught up on my DVR where I missed watching my daytime shows, and some night times ones too because I was glued to Runkle and the rest of the guys on Youtube. I think we all need a bit of a break. Maybe. We shall see what is coming up.
Meanwhile, Johnny Depp as been having the time of his life playing guitar and singing with Jeff Back on tour at London’s Royal Albert Hall. He got a standing ovation from the sold out crowd. I presume he will be back in court on Wednesday, but he really doesn’t HAVE to be there.
So we wait. I think at this point everyone has their mind made up and most if not all are pro Johnny Depp. But, all it takes is one holdout or God forbid three to make things take forever. If the verdict comes back Tuesday that is a good sign for Johnny because there are some jurors who are very obvious about being on his side.
Or they might decide to go with there was abuse on both sides. But, even then Johnny still wins his suit and vindicates his name. And either one of them or both could be granted monetary compensation. Or they could send them all home with nothing.
There is some talk about them giving Johnny $1. I don’t think the jury will even realize that is a choice. Runkle thinks it would great if Johnny was awarded $7 million, because that is what Amber got in the divorce. I don’t think they would think about that either. But, I’d love it if they did!
So when do you think the verdict will come in? What do you think will be there decision? They could find for Johnny but not for Amber, or vice versa. Remember there are two cases for them to rule on Johnny’s initial suit and the Amber’s countersuit. They could find for both cases if they go the abuse on both sides way. Or decide to deny both cases. Do you think anyone will get a monetary compensation for defamation? Any guesses on how much?
