Amber Heard is calling for a mistrial in the Johnny Depp defamation case after her legal team claims to have discovered that one of the jurors who decided the case was never actually summoned for jury duty.
Entertainment Tonight obtained the legal docs in which Amber Heard’s team has pointed out the apparent legal snafu. An unidentified 77-year-old living in a Virginia address was summoned to jury duty, however, Heard’s team claims that an unidentified 52-year-old, who lives at the exact same address and shared the exact same last name as the unidentified 77-year-old, showed up for jury duty instead. After which, the unidentified 52-year-old somehow managed to serve as a juror, getting picked for the six-week controversial trial. The Aquaman 2 actress’ team further alleged that the unidentified 52-year-old was “never” summoned for jury duty on April 11 and didn’t appear on the jury list as required. Hence, Amber Heard’s team argued that a mistrial should be declared and a new trial should consequently be ordered.
