ST. PAUL, Minn. - Jurors have reconvened in St. Paul to deliberate on whether a late famed military sniper defamed former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura in his bestselling memoir.
Jurors received the case midday Tuesday, and they deliberated for about 4 1/2 hours. They reconvened about 9 a.m. Wednesday.
Ventura says Chris Kyle invented a story in his memoir "American Sniper" about punching him in a California bar in 2006 after Ventura supposedly insulted SEALs.
Ventura's attorney asked the jury for millions of dollars in damages for what the former Navy SEAL and pro wrestler claims is a lie.
But an attorney for Kyle's estate says Ventura failed to prove that Kyle made up the story or that Ventura suffered financially because of the book.
Kyle was slain at a gun range last year.
