ST. PAUL, Minn. – A jury has awarded former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura $1.8 million in his lawsuit against the estate of “American Sniper” author Chris Kyle.
The federal jury in St. Paul found Tuesday that the 2012 best-selling book libeled Ventura in describing a bar fight in California in 2006. Kyle wrote that he decked a man later identified as Ventura after the man allegedly said the Navy SEALs “deserve to lose a few.”
Ventura, a former governor and professional wrestler, testified the incident never happened. Kyle insisted in testimony videotaped before he was slain last year that it did.
Both sides put witnesses on the stand during the two-week trial that backed their version of events.
Legal experts said before the trial Ventura had to clear a high legal bar to win.

While Casey Anthony remains a virtual recluse, the acquitted ‘Tot Mom’ is working as a live-in nanny for her attorney, Cheney Mason!
After Anthony’s legal team negotiated a failed book deal for her, she disappeared from the public eye and has been living the life of a hermit inside Mason’s Florida mansion.
But there are new legal woes looming for the 28-year-old, because it seems the money she made for her domestic duties inside Mason’s home weren’t claimed in her 2013 bankruptcy filing, claims Casey’s Ghost author Rick Namey.
“She’s staying in his house and acting as a housekeeper — and working there.
“The value of that accommodation has to be ascribed as income on the bankruptcy application and it’s not!”
According to documents filed with the Bankruptcy Court in Fla., Anthony claims she’s been unemployed for four years with an annual income of zero.
