(St. Paul, MN) -- A federal jury is siding with former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura in a defamation lawsuit against the estate of "American Sniper" Chris Kyle. The jury voted 8-2 today that Kyle defamed Ventura when he said he punched him out in 2006 outside a California bar. Ventura said that incident never happened. Ventura is getting over a million dollars in damages. He kept his lawsuit against Kyle going, despite the fact that the ex-Navy SEAL was murdered in Central Texas last year.
