Washington: A Virginia judge on Wednesday rejected actress Amber Heard’s demand for a new trial in the defamation case she lost to her former husband Johnny Depp.

Heard’s lawyers had asked Judge Penney Azcarate to set aside the verdict awarding $10 million to the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star and declare a mistrial, but the judge denied the request.
