ST. PAUL, Minn., Sept. 24 (UPI) — A defamation lawsuit filed by former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura against the widow of a former Navy SEAL will not be moved to Texas, a judge said.
Ventura sued Chris Kyle for a passage in his book, “American Sniper,” in which Kyle describes a bar brawl with an unidentified man spouting conspiracy theories about the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the war in Iraq and then-President George W. Bush.
Only later did Kyle reveal Ventura as the purported conspiracy theorist, the Dallas Morning News said Tuesday. Ventura denies the fight ever happened.
