Los Angeles: Johnny Depp's lawyers argued Monday that his US$10.35 million defamation verdict against ex-wife Amber Heard should be upheld, despite the possibility that the wrong juror showed up for the trial.

Heard's lawyers have argued that the verdict should be set aside and a new trial should be ordered because one of the seven jurors in the case never received a summons.

But in a filing on Monday, Depp's lawyers argued that Heard has not shown that she suffered any prejudice due to the error, and that she waived her right to object by not raising the issue sooner.
