The legal team of Amber Herd filed papers this week asking the court to overturn the decision that the actress must pay the Johnny Depp $15 million in defamation damages.

Their arguments for overturning the verdict are threefold: They believe that Johnny Depp's team did not provide enough evidence to prove that her Washington Post article cost him his movie roles. They also stressed that she never named Depp in the text, and they were most concerned that one of the jurors was not who they thought he would be.


According to TMZ, the legal team claims that Juror #15 who was called to court and Juror #15 who appeared are not the same person.

On paper, this juror was born in 1945, but Hurd's legal team says the person who appeared in court is much younger.


If it is determined that the court did not exercise "due care" in vetting the jury, that could be a valid reason to overturn the verdict reached by that jury, foreign media reports.
