Depp v Heard trial finally delves into article that sparked the entire case – as more severed finger details come out in court

Amber Heard’s now famous opinion column on domestic violence was drafted for her, and the actress wanted to include details about her marriage against legal advice, a jury has been told – as more details on the day Johnny Depp severed his finger were also revealed in court.

Jurors in the libel lawsuit filed by Depp against Heard listened to testimony from Terence Dougherty, general counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), who told the court that a staff member wrote the first version of the Washington Post article under the actress’s name and that tweaks were made to avoid making a direct link to her ex-husband.
