Amber Heard's legal team alleges wrong juror was seated in Depp trial, says mistrial should be declared
The legal team for Amber Heard is asking for a mistrial to be declared in the defamation
lawsuit involving Johnny Depp, alleging that a wrong juror was seated on the jury.
Heard's legal team made the filing on Friday afternoon, arguing that juror number 15 was
not actually the individual who was summoned by the court, and "could not have properly served on the jury at this trial."

of birth in 1945, meaning the individual would have been 77 years old during the trial.

old was the person who appeared for jury duty and sat on the jury, the filing alleges.
"The individual who appeared for jury duty with this name was obviously the younger one.
