The Supreme Court has rebuffed former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura’s bid for reinstatement of a $1.8 million verdict in his defamation case against the estate of slain Navy SEAL and “American Sniper” author Chris Kyle. The decision on Monday upheld the same verdict by the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
This decision comes after a federal appeals court threw out a $1.8 million judgment awarded to Ventura in June.
