Amber Heard’s Attorneys Seek to Toss Verdict in Johnny Depp Defamation Trial
Amber Heard’s legal team filed a motion Friday requesting that the verdict of the defamation trial against her ex-husband Johnny Depp be tossed, including the 10.35 million in damages awarded to Depp by the jury.

In addition to Heard’s attorneys arguing that the verdict is not supported by evidence, the 43-page document submitted to the Fairfax County Circuit Court Friday also calls “to investigate improper juror service,” claiming that public information indicates that a juror who served during the trial was born in 1970, despite court officials listing their birth year as 1945.

“This discrepancy raises the question whether Juror 15 actually received a summons for jury duty and was properly vetted by the court to serve on the jury,” Heard’s lawyers wrote.

Heard’s legal team also argues that the jurors’ 10.35 million award against the actress is “inconsistent and irreconcilable” with the jury’s conclusion both her and Depp had defamed one another.
