Actress Amber Heard and her team of lawyers seek to annul the verdict that ordered her to pay more than 10 million dollars to her ex-husband Johnny Depp in the trial they held for defamation.
According to his lawyers, the court’s decision has no support and that Depp did not meet the legal requirements to prove real malice since it was not proven that his career and reputation were affected after the actress’s article.

Heard’s team also went against the jury and pointed out that one of the jurors had a different date than reported by court officials. According to the official letter, it had been indicated that the juror 15 had been born in 1945, but in person he looks younger and that he would have been born in 1970.
“This discrepancy raises the question of whether juror 15 actually received a jury summons and whether he was properly vetted by the court for jury duty,” they explained to TMZ.

They also indicated that the compensation of 10.3 million dollars is inconsistent since both had defamed each other.
From Depp’s defense, they dismissed the request. (YO)
