The court decision means that Depp will now have to pay legal fees.

These expenses relate to evidence he and his legal staff gathered while in court with his ex-spouse.

After becoming involved in the case, the American Civil Liberties Union demanded reimbursement from Johnny Depp before a verdict could be reached.

The non-profit entity claimed that it sought compensation for "considerable expense" incurred in responding to Mr. Depp's subpoenas.

This was in an underlying case in which neither the ACLU or any of its employees were parties.

Lawyers for the organization also claimed that the star demanded thousands of documents over six years. These documents would be used in the trial.

The group concluded that $86,000 would suffice to cover their services.

A Manhattan Supreme Court justice ruled this week that the ACLU will receive $38,000 from the actor.

Although the final amount is less than half what the group requested in reimbursement, the organization appears happy.

A spokesperson for Newsweek expressed satisfaction that the matter was being addressed in a statement.

We are happy that the Court acknowledged that the ACLU had complied with Mr. Depp’s requests, even though it was a costly decision.
