Skip to comments.Jesse Ventura lawsuit: Navy SEAL says he decked ex-governor
Posted on 08/29/2012 3:21:00 PM PDT by TurboZamboni
A group of combat-tested Navy SEALs say they learned something any statehouse reporter in Minnesota could've told them: When Jesse Ventura talks, the subject is usually Jesse Ventura.
But the special forces members -- some still on active duty -- are supporting a comrade's claim that during a wake for a fallen team member six years ago, the former governor popped off one too many times, prompting one of them to deck him in a California bar.
After that SEAL, Chris Kyle, described the alleged incident in his memoirs about his military career as a sniper, Ventura sued him, claiming that the incident never happened and that Kyle defamed him.
Attorneys for Kyle are seeking to have most of Ventura's federal lawsuit thrown out. In a motion filed Tuesday, Aug. 28, they contend that the former governor's claims that Kyle misappropriated Ventura's likeness and unjustly enriched himself from the governor "fail as a matter of law."

Good book. Looking forward to the one about nailing UBL. Apparently all the SEALs despised Obama and joked about how “they just got him re-elected”. Let’s hope that’s not the case.
Chris never said his name in the book “American Sniper” and does not give out much info on guy..
I had to google it to find out from bloggers that they think it was Jesse...
Had a black eye at a funeral next day..
Guess his new nickname is Jesse “The Pu$$y” Ventura.
I hate to think what Jesse would do if Kyle wore a pink boa in public!
What if he changed his name to Adorable Adrian?
Only one way to settle this...cage match!!!
I doubt anyone could improve on this description.
I would give my left nut to have seen this guy punch that idiot.
“Strap this to your sore ass Blaine.”
Jessie was asked to tone it down ... Jessie made a choice.... gravity happens
Exactly right. Jesse has no class at all.
Kyle never names Ventura but describes “Scruff Face” in ways Ventura contends a reader could easily surmise was him: he was an “older” UDT member who had served during Vietnam, he had become a “celebrity,” he was disdainful of the government, he was moving to Mexico and he thought the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks were a conspiracy.
You might be right but as i said i did not know anything about Venturas life except he was a wrestler and a Governor so did not make the connection..
