During closing arguments, both sides told the jury that a verdict in their favor would give their clients their lives back. On Tuesday, Depp's attorneys asked Judge Azcarate to instruct the jury to disregard a portion of the closing argument made by Heard's attorney.

The judge told Depp's attorneys in court that she would not entertain the motion because the case is in the hands of the jury now. A public relations firm for Heard did not immediately respond to a request seeking comment on the motion.
