In a recent podcast, Baker said she went into the trial believing that neither Depp nor Heard would win the case.

“I came in thinking it was quite possible” [that they would both lose]’ she said on the Not skinny but not fat podcasting.

However, she said she can now see a way to make Depp win the case, based on an important detail in Amber Heard’s testimony.

During her time in the stands, Heard confirmed that she has the . retweeted Washington Post opinion piece she wrote. Given that her retweet contained the headline that Depp claims to be defamatory, Baker believes this gave Depp’s case an advantage.

The headline is ‘Opinion Amber Heard’: ‘I spoke about sexual violence and faced the wrath of our culture. This has to change,’ she continues.

“Her team has claimed she didn’t write the headline. Depp’s team argues, even if she didn’t write the headline, she retweeted it, saying, “Today I made this post in the Washington Post about the women channeling their anger over violence and inequality into political power, despite the price.” of coming forward.’

“So there’s the headline and she says, ‘I published this article.’ So I think the tweet is their strongest point right now because she says, “I wrote this” and she says, “I wrote this including the headline.”

“And if they find that those allegations aren’t real or they don’t believe them or they can’t believe them enough to say it’s not defamatory, then those are his strongest points.”

After the court heard closing arguments, Baker elaborated on her views on the verdict in a live YouTube stream.

“What do I think will happen? If we see a win for Johnny Depp, we’ll see the retweet. According to the law, that is his clearest path to victory,” she said.

“I am not a deliberating judge. I also have information about this matter from the internet that has come out that has not been proven.

“But if Johnny Depp wins, I think it’ll be on the tweet. At the beginning of this case, I didn’t think there was a road to victory. The law and the surgery didn’t work well for me. And I thought, ‘This is going to be very, very difficult.’

‘Law and opinion were not mathematics. After watching this trial for six weeks, I understand why they chose to do this trial and I see Johnny Depp has the potential to win.

“And that’s a huge win, I think, for them because that wasn’t where I was at the start of this matter.

“So my verdict is that if there’s a win, that’s it. I still think this jury can go with no one wins, I still think this jury can hang. I never put that aside. I also don’t like to gamble on verdicts, I didn’t do that with my own verdicts.”

Baker also clarified the different results that could come out of the high-profile trial.

“The jury can determine that no one is liable, no one has defamed anyone, no one has defamed anyone, no defamation at all. Everyone loses,” she explained.

“The jury might find that one side wins. I see no way both sides win on slander. If you think Amber Heard has not discredited Johnny Depp then you can get them to call her a scammer which is in fact defamatory.

“If you think she hasn’t discredited Johnny Depp or if you think she has slandered Johnny Depp, calling her a cheater or a liar isn’t necessarily slander in your eyes.

“I don’t think they can both win, I think they can both lose.

“This jury can hang. If there is one or two persons on the jury, because it must be unanimous, then seven are deliberating and it must be unanimous. If there’s a couple, one or two whatever on the jury, who fiercely believe one side or the other…if at the end of that closing, you strongly believe one side or the other, then how come to the other side?

“If you believe Amber Heard lied about Johnny Depp, are you ever going to say, ‘No, Amber Heard didn’t slander Johnny Depp.’ And if you believe Johnny Depp abused Amber Heard horribly, are you ever going to say, “No, she discredited Johnny Depp.” And that’s where you end up with a hung jury potential.

“The potential for a hung jury is that if you believe one side strongly, nothing will affect you.”
