Jesse Ventura trial: 2 questions from jury, but no verdict

Posted: Updated:
ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) -

After 4 hours of deliberations on Tuesday, the Jesse Ventura defamation trial continued Wednesday as jurors work toward a verdict at the federal courthouse in St. Paul, Minn. Their day began at 9 a.m., and as of Tuesday afternoon, the jury had asked the judge two questions, but attorneys from both sides have declined to reveal the questions.

The 10-person jury heard an hour of arguments from each side on Tuesday in the trail against former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle who claimed to have punched Ventura in 2006 after Ventura told him “you deserve to lose a few.” He chronicled the event in his book "American Sniper," but was killed last year in Texas by a veteran he was apparently mentoring who had PTSD. Ventura continued the lawsuit against his widow, Taya Kyle, who is the executrix of his estate.

The story, “Punching out Scruff Face,” got attention during Kyle's appearances on the Opie and Anthony radio show and on Bill O’Reilly’s show on Fox News Channel. In both cases, Kyle used Ventura’s name.
