    A judge has denied Amber Heard's motion to have the verdict of her blockbuster defamation trial against ex-husband Johnny Depp thrown out and the case re-tried. Lawyers representing Heard, 36, filed a motion earlier this month on the grounds that the verdict that she had defamed Depp, 59, was not supported by evidence.  They also alleged that a juror had not been properly vetted and questioned whether that juror was even supposed to be allowed on the jury.  Court documents obtained by DailyMail.com show that Judge Penny Azcarate denied all of Heard's post-trial requests on Wednesday.  A judge has denied Amber Heard's motion to have the verdict of her blockbuster defamation trial against ex-husband Johnny Depp thrown out and the case re-tried Depp's lead attorney, Ben Chew, responded to the motion in a statement to Courthouse News, saying 'What we expected, just longer, no more substantive' In a 43-page memorandum, Heard's lawyers argued that the verdict - and the $10million in damages she now owes Depp - should be tossed out on the grounds that during the trial, Depp 'proceeded solely...
    FLINT, Mich. (AP) — A judge awarded about $40 million Friday to the lead attorneys in a $626 million settlement for Flint residents and property owners whose water was contaminated with lead, but millions in additional legal fees will also be carved out as claimants get paid. The decision is one of the last major rulings in a landmark deal to settle lawsuits against Flint and the state of Michigan over the failure to properly treat corrosive water from the Flint River before it flowed through pipes in 2014-15, releasing lead along the way.

News. A judge declared that the property belongs to the 39-year-old talk show host, despite the fact Blackstock, 44, has been living there since they split in June 2020. Blackstock originally requested that the ranch was “marital property” and should be shared equally between the two, but the judge disagreed since it was Clarkson who paid for the $10.4 million property. “The Court further finds that the Montana Ranch and the other two Montana properties are not titled in both of the Parties’ names either as joint tenants with right of survivorship or as tenants by the entireties, as required under the PMA to create marital property,” the decision reads in documents...
    The facade of Blue Origin's new rocket engine factory in Huntsville, Alabama.CNBC | Michael Sheetz The U.S. Federal Court of Claims released the redacted version of the lawsuit filed in August by Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin against NASA and Elon Musk's SpaceX over a lucrative lunar lander contract awarded earlier this year. "Historically a staunch advocate for prioritizing safety, NASA inexplicably disregarded key flight safety requirements for only SpaceX, in order to select and make award to a SpaceX proposal that assessed as tremendously high risk and immensely complex, even before the waiver of safety requirements," Blue Origin wrote in the lawsuit. Blue Origin's complaint in court comes after the U.S. Government Accountability Office denied the company's protest, upholding NASA's decision. The congressional watchdog's ruling backed the space agency's surprise announcement in April that NASA awarded SpaceX with a lunar lander contract worth about $2.9 billion. SpaceX was competing with Blue Origin and Dynetics for what was expected to be two contracts, before NASA only awarded a single contract due to a lower-than-expected allocation for the program from Congress.

    A CRYPTO drugdealer was awarded £1.1m by a judge after cops seized his Bitcoin that rocketed to ten times its value while he was locked up. The embarrassing ruling could open the door to similar judgements as crypto thugs try to claw back their illegal earnings. 2Sweden's government is being forced to repay the entire £1.1m The man - who has not been named - was jailed in Sweden and his Bitcoin auctioned off, which at the time was worth around £100,000 (1.3m Swedish kronor). But by the time Swedish authorities began selling all 36 Bitcoin, they had appreciated in value tenfold, according to The Telegraph. Tove Kullberg, who successfully litigated to have the man stripped of his crypto stash during his arrest, said there were "lessons to be learned" from the humiliating saga. "The lesson to be learned from this is to keep the value in Bitcoin, that the profit from the crime should be 36 bitcoin, regardless of what value the bitcoin has at the time," she said. This comes as billions of pounds worth of cash in...
    A new mom in the UK is getting up to $12,000 in damages — for not getting invited to Christmas drinks while she was on maternity leave, according to UK reports. Catriona Howie won an employment tribunal claim against her employer, the Croydon kitchen design company Holloways Of Ludlow, for “injury to the feelings” over the invite slight, The Times of London said . Company director Sarah Nelson had told the hearing that the firm had not thrown a proper Christmas party in 2018 because it was struggling financially, and instead just put $275 behind the bar at a local pub. Accepting that Howie had not been invited, Nelson insisted it was just because “it was not a proper party and nor was it a normal year,” the UK paper said. Judge Corinna Ferguson accepted that “there was no deliberate decision” to exclude Howie — but ruled that the reason she was not invited “was that no one thought about her.” “Had she been at work around this time, she would certainly have been invited. She was overlooked because...

In the week prior to the highly-anticipated league clash, players Piotr Zielinski and Eljif Elmas had contracted the virus alongside a staff member. It came on the back of news that Genoa, Napoli's previous opponents, had 22 players test positive for the virus. Rules in Italy stated that anybody who came in contact with a positive test had to self-isolate. But those did not apply to Serie A which was agreed before the start of the season. Juventus even travelled to their home stadium to play the game while Napoli failed to make the 700-mile trip. Napoli wanted the game rescheduled but a judge from Serie A claimed 'force majeure' did not...
