Will Depp be called as a witness for Heard's team?
Earlier today we were told it was likely Johnny Depp would be called as a witness for Amber Heard's team today. However, by mid-way through today's session we discovered he was not going to be called.
Depp's lawyers just asked whether he would be called later this week, and the court has been told "it will be decided in the morning".
So, it's possible we'll have Depp back in the witness box once more - but not confirmed.
The questioning has now finished. Thank God.Sky News
'Poop and defecation'
Amber Heard's lawyer briefly re-questions expert witness Kathryn Arnold.
The lawyer reminds the court that between April 2020 and January 2021 Heard received 1.2m negative comments on social media (this was told to the court in evidence given to the court on Thursday by Twitter expert Ron Schnell).
She asks if Ms Arnold's estimated damage to Heard of up to $50m was based on the top limits of what she could have earned, and she says no she was always "grounded" and based her estimates on previously negotiated fees for her previously roles.
In her review of negative media campaigns against Heard, Ms Arnold is asked how many used the words "poop or defecation". Ms Arnold says she believes the word "poop" was used in some of the negative statements.
This refers to an accusation that someone defecated in Johnny Depp and Heard's marital bed on the night after the couple argued on her 30th birthday.
The questioning of the witness has now finished.

Not sure why Law and Crime are saying he won't be testifying. I heard the same thing Sky did.
I seriously feel no closer to giving a crap about either of these two than I was before they got on my radar. This trial to me has been 50% farce. I feel like the judge agrees with me on this.
It is so tedious and the lawyers’ skills leave much to be desired. I know folks loved Camille’s cross of Amber! I didn’t - please don’t quote me to tell me why it was the best thing ever! Let’s agree to disagree! I found her snark and tone completely unnecessary. I couldn’t help compare to the many excellent crosses I’ve seen in criminal trials - and hers didn’t come close.
I expect the trial to continue in the same vein with disappointing closings in both sides. Only the jury verdict can save us at this point!
