Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/30/2014 - 05:11

FORMER MINNESOTA GOVERNOR VENTURA DURING TIMBERWOLVES NBA PLAYOFF GAME.By Art Hughes ST. PAUL Minn. (Reuters) - Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura was awarded more than $1.8 million in damages on Tuesday after a federal jury found he had been defamed in a book by an ex-Navy SEAL who claimed the two were in a bar fight. In an 8-2 decision, the jury awarded Ventura $1.35 million for unjust enrichment and $500,000 for defamation over the book, written by Chris Kyle, a former Navy SEAL who was killed in 2013 at a Texas shooting range by a troubled Iraq war veteran he was trying to mentor. Ventura feels vindicated by having a jury declare that the story about the fight was a lie, his lawyer, David Bradley Olsen, told reporters.
