The judge said there is no evidence of fraud. She also noted Heard's legal team had weeks to speak up about any juror error and did not. They only said something after the verdict.

Heard will also have to pay 6% annual interest and if she appeals she will have to post a bond for the full amount she owes, over $10 million.

Heard is also battling her insurance company as they refuse to pay $1,000,000 in legal fees saying what she did are “willful acts” and insurance does not pay for that.
