Depp won the high-profile defamation case last month, where he successfully sued the actress for an op-ed she wrote about him in 2018. However, her lawyers are now demanding a retrial.
In a 43-page document, her legal team has argued that one member of the jury has lied about their date of birth, to which they state: “The court should investigate whether Juror 15 properly served on duty.

“On the juror panel list presented to the court, Juror 15 had a birth year of 1945. Juror 15, however, was clearly born after 1945.
“This discrepancy raises the question whether Juror 15 actually received a summons for jury duty and was properly vetted by the Court to serve on the jury.”
The two-month-long trial concluded with both Heard and Depp found to have defamed each other. However, Heard was only awarded $2million in damages while Depp was awarded $15 million in damages.
It was later revealed that the Aquaman star was unable to pay the damages to her ex-husband.
In the document, Heard’s lawyers claim that the final fee was unwarranted. They go on to argue that he only deserved to be given reputational damages.
It states: “The jury’s verdict was obviously influenced by Mr Depp’s pleas.
“Here, the jury’s determination of $10million in compensatory damages is excessive as a matter of law, as there is no evidence to support this verdict.”
