Judge rejects Amber Heard's request to set aside Depp win
FALLS CHURCH, Va. (AP) — A judge has rejected a request from actress Amber Heard to set aside the $10 million judgment awarded against her in favor of her ex-husband, Johnny Depp.
Depp won a defamation suit against Heard last month in a high-profile civil trial.
Earlier this month, Heard filed a motion seeking to have Depp's verdict set aside, or have a mistrial declared.
Her lawyers cited multiple factors, including an apparent case of mistaken identity with one of the jurors.
In a written order Wednesday , Judge Penney Azcarate rejected all of Heard's claims and said the juror issue specifically was irrelevant.
