The legal case between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp has been heard around the world. It’s a case rife with allegations of domestic violence on both sides, which will be challenging for the jury to make a decision.

In this episode Bill and Megan discuss the case and why it is important to focus on the big picture rather than being persuaded by a single picture or an isolated story. They will discuss:

  • What kind of case is it – family law or defamation?
  • Who will decide – a judge or a jury?
  • The four different types of domestic violence
  • Whether the jurors can keep an open mind or not
  • Can jurors avoid confirmation bias, assuming it’s always true, always false or always both?
  • Why do juries and judges need 3 theories of any case of allegations of abuse?
