Why was the road closed?
Judge Penney S Azcarate had prior commitments that required her to take a week off from trial. There was a 7 day break as a result of this.
Heard had taken the stand before taking a week off to tell her version of the event. On May 16, the trial resumed, and Heard continued his story, beginning cross-examination as well.
The trial is scheduled to end on May 19. The jury will decide the decision, so we may not know the result for hours or days.
