Jesse Ventura lost his appeal to reinstate a $1.8 million award in the defamation case against ‘American Sniper’ Chris Kyle.
The former Minnesota governor claimed Kyle made up a story about punching him in the face at a bar in his autobiography, even though Ventura was never mentioned by name in that book.
On Monday, U.S. Supreme Court denied Ventura’s attempts to reinstate the defamation case against Chris Kyle, his family, and his estate.
