Guards at New York City jail accused of drug trafficking - Yahoo NEW!
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 an Iraq war veteran. The jury deliberated for six days before announcing its verdict, in a U.S. district court in St. Paul, Minnesota. Ventura feels vindicated by having a jury declare the story about the fight was a lie, his lawyer, David Bradley Olsen, told reporters.
