Amber Heard’s plea for a mistrial in her well-known defamation lawsuit against her divorced husband Johnny Depp refused in a Virginia judge. The judge stated that there is no reason to reverse the $10 million judgement against her.
Following the amended decision, admirers of Johnny Depp chastised the American actress on Twitter for rejecting the effort. One individual called the decision of the judge “wonderful,” adding, “Hopefully it’s finished for good.”
In a motion filed on June 8, the 36-year-old actress’s legal team sought that the June 1 judgement be set aside because to claims of a sham jury. They alleged that one of the seven picked jurors did not get a summons and that Juror No. 15 was in fact someone else.
On July 13, however, Decide Penney Azcarate refused the application, noting that Heard’s legal team should have contested the judgement earlier. The decision was also deemed suitable by the judge.
“Defendant makes no arguments that the jury’s selection of Juror Fifteen disadvantaged her in any way.” The juror screened, served on the jury as a whole, deliberated, and made a decision. The sole evidence in the courtroom is that this juror and all other jurors followed their oaths, the court’s rules, and its instructions. This courtroom bound by the jury’s competent decision. Twitter reactions to Amber Heard’s rejected plea.
Supporters of Johnny Depp applauded the judge’s decision to reject Amber Heard’s appeal, and some even mocked her lawyer’s attempts to sway the decision. One fan stated that Heard’s lawyer, Elaine Bredehoft, was aware of the allegedly false remarks.
Many Twitter users also called attention to the fact that Decide Azcarate had “sent a message right here” by underlining certain parts of the document.
I appreciate the effort Decide A took to completely factually and legally reject Juror 15’s objection. Except for Amber Heard, no one else committed fraud or dishonesty, as is customary.
The fact that Decide A denied ALL of Amber Heard’s post-trial petitions did not surprise me. Juror 15 was called based on his rank and domicile, and the courtroom made it clear that his birthdate WAS NOT LISTED ON THE SUMMARY. The jury questionnaire had his CORRECT birthdate.
Chief Decide Azcarate just denied all of Amber Heard’s post-trial petitions on CourtTV.

Followers argued that Heard and her lawyer “must heal” because Depp won the lawsuit. Several supporters speculated that they could already hear Heard’s supporters accuse the judge of prejudice.
Heard’s crew wrote the next within the paperwork:
“As a result, the 52-year-old (redacted) who sat on the panel for six weeks did not get a summons for jury duty on April 11 and did not “appear on the list,” as required. Juror No. 15 clearly not the individual identified on the jury panel on this occasion. As a result, Ms. Heard’s right to due process violated. A mistrial must be declared in this case, and a new trial must be set.”
Johnny Depp sued Amber Heard for $50 million over an opinion article she published in the Washington Post in 2018. She identified herself as “a prominent figure representing domestic violence” and claimed to have been a victim of domestic abuse in the article.
Though she did not specifically mention Depp, his lawyers argued that the article inferred that Heard was alluding to the actor. In punishment for undermining his office popularity, they wanted money from his ex-wife.
Heard countersued Depp for $100 million, alleging defamation and that her accusations of domestic abuse were a “hoax.”
Following a six-week long, heated legal battle, Depp received $15 million in compensation and punitive penalties from a seven-person jury in Fairfax, Virginia. As a result of Virginia’s laws, this eventually reduced to $10.35 million. Amber Heard received a $2 million settlement as well, but no punitive penalties.
What was mentioned in regards to the allegedly phony juror by Amber Heard’s crew?
According to a courtroom plea filed on June 8, two people with the same last name lived on the property where the summons was obtained in April 2022. The summons was for a 77-year-old guy, but when it came time for jury duty, the opposite local, a 52-year-old, showed up as Juror 15.
Decide A must have denied Amber Heard’s post-trial petitions. I wonder whether the Turd will attempt to follow the enchantment at this level. Elaine and her both want to go over the #JohnnyDeppWon.
Others said that the lawyer “filed them to get reimbursed for them by Amber’s insurance coverage” since she was aware that the motions were “pointless and obsolete.”
As of yet, the general public is unaware of the specific person’s identify.
