Judge denied Amber Heard's request for a mistrial due to an alleged juror error.

A Virginia judge rejected Amber Heard's request for a new trial on Wednesday because she claimed the wrong juror was picked. She made this claim after Johnny Depp was awarded a $10.35 million judgement against her.

Judge Penney Azcarate, who presided over the extraordinary six-week trial in Fairfax County Circuit Court, declared that there was "no proof of fraud or malfeasance."

In a motion submitted on Friday, Heard's legal team claimed that a summons had been delivered to a 77-year-old man; however, the man's 52-year-old son, who has the same name and address, responded in its place. The son was assigned to Juror No. 15 on the panel.

Elaine Bredehoft, the attorney for the "Aquaman" actress, asserted that it was the court's duty to confirm the veracity of the jurors' testimony.

Azcarate said that Juror No. 15's legal name and residence were given on the summons, but no birthdate was specified. She affixed the jury questionnaire for Juror No. 15 to the order.

According to what she wrote, "Juror Fifteen filled the Jury Questionnaire as himself giving out his proper birth date."

As stated in the jury questionnaire, "the information offered on the jury questionnaire matches the information Juror Fifteen provided to the Court."

A party cannot raise an issue that has been known since the start of the trial for the first time after receiving a negative verdict.
