In a saddening story, truly indicative of the greed man is capable of, the courts recently sided with Jesse Ventura in favor of $1.8 million against a dead veteran hero.
The suit began when Chris Kyle, author of “American Sniper,” wrote that he punched out Conspiracy Theorist Jesse Ventura said the Navy SEALs “deserve to lose a few.” Ventura immediately filed suit saying that the entire ordeal was fabricated and wanted a huge chunk of the book’s profits for defamation of character.
After 6 days of deliberation, the jury finally announced that the decision was going to Ventura in the amount of $1.8 million dollars – $500,000 for defamation and $1.3 million for unjust enrichment. Despite Kyle having given sworn testimony that the story was not fictitious and his passing, many are outraged with the results.
