Jesse Ventura Wins Lawsuit Against the Estate of a Navy SEAL

Jesse VenturaJesse Ventura has won his lawsuit against the estate of a Navy SEAL. Ventura says that the man wrote a book that included a false story that he punched out Ventura for making a negative comment about the Navy SEALs. Ventura won a $1.8 million verdict, and is now the target of criticism due to concerns of how the wife and children of the deceased man will be provided for after such a large hit to the estate. However, Ventura, also a former Navy SEAL, maintains that this suit was about the truth and clearing his name from the allegation of treason.
