Amber Heard loses bid to throw out Johnny Depp verdict over wrong juror

A judge has denied Heard's request to declare a mistrial and hold a new one.

Heard said the US defamation trial was flawed because a jury summons meant

for one man was fulfilled by his son, who shares the same name and address.

Judge Penney Azcarate said there was "no evidence of fraud or wrongdoing".

The latest ruling comes six weeks after the jury in Fairfax, Virginia, decided

that Heard had defamed Depp, the star of the Pirates of the Caribbean films,

when she wrote an article saying she had been a victim of domestic abuse.

He was awarded $10.35m (£8.2m) damages.

The Aquaman actress won one of her counter-claims against him, awarding her $2m (£1.5m).
