    Jury Awards Jesse Ventura $1.8 Million in Defamation Case Against Deceased ‘American Sniper’ Chris Kyle’s Estate

    ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A jury awarded former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura $1.8 million Tuesday in his lawsuit against the estate of “American Sniper” author Chris Kyle.

    On the sixth day of deliberations, the federal jury decided that the 2012 best-selling book defamed Ventura in its description of a bar fight in California in 2006. Kyle wrote that he decked a man whom he later identified as Ventura after the man allegedly said the Navy SEALs “deserve to lose a few.”

    1.7 million goes a long way when you're "off the grid" in a third world country.

    Alex Jones is sending him the news via carrier pigeon that's been pumped full of InfoWars antioxidants. Hopefully an NWO drone won't shoot it down.

    Ventura lies about being a navy SEAL, something he brings up about every fucking 3 sentences regardless ofthe topic at hand. He hasn't ever got his comeuppance, I wold really have just called it a wash. Plus its gauche bordering on revolting that he didn't drop the suit when the guy died -- it's not like he's hurting for the money.

    The SEALs did not exist when the was in the navy. He was In BUDS and when theSEALs where formed BUDS was folded into it but I believe he was out by then.

    Ventura's a lying scumbag, but I read a few articles written by SEALs and they seem to consider BUDS guy fellow SEALs. I used to rip on Ventura for that too, but apparently they have no issue with him calling himself a SEAL.

    I'm not sure how I feel about the lawsuit. I do think that Kyle made the story up as a "fuck you" to Ventura, but I think he purposely left the story ambiguous in the book to avoid any legal trouble. Then he made the mistake of admitting that he was referring to Jesse when interviewed. So I can see why Jesse felt like he had to pursue this through the courts.

    That being said, if he let his lawyer get his third and either donated the rest to a charity or let Kyle's estate (wife) keep it, he'd look a hell of a lot better. He got his vindication. Let's be honest, Ventura fans didn't believe Kyle anyway. They already made their minds up. The reason his show's ratings plummeted was because he was doing episodes about fucking reptile people and skinwalkers. Even casual conspiracy theorists laugh at that shit. I don't believe that Kyle's BS story cost him a single penny and his reputation was already shot to shit.
