A Virginia court on Wednesday rejected actress Amber Heard’s request to overturn the verdict in the lingering case between her and her ex-husband actor Johnny Depp. Entertainment magazine variety reports that the judge does not agree with Heard’s arguments to reject the ruling.
Heard’s attorneys said there was fraud because one of the jurors did not have the correct date of birth on his summons card. But according to the judge, this problem should have been raised earlier. Moreover, the judge does not consider it proven that there was intentional fraud.
Depp had sued Heard over an op-ed she had written about her experiences with domestic violence. She did not mention a name in the article in The Washington Post, but according to the actor it was obvious that it was about him. He argued that his career and reputation had suffered as a result and demanded compensation. The jury agreed with him and awarded him more than 10 million dollars.
