'Sniper' Author's Widow Seeks Ventura Case Retrial

St. Paul, Minn. (AP) The widow of "American Sniper'' author Chris Kyle has asked a judge to set aside a jury's verdict in favor of former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura or to order a new trial. In filings Thursday, Taya Kyle's attorneys say the applicable laws and the trial evidence don't support the jury's award of $1.8 million for defamation and unjust enrichment. Former Navy Seal Chris Kyle wrote that he decked Ventura at a bar in 2006 after Ventura made offensive comments about Seals. Ventura says the confrontation never happened. Kyle's considered the deadliest sniper in U.S. military history. He was killed in Texas last year. Taya Kyle's attorneys say Ventura didn't meet his burden of proving the story was false, and that Kyle knew it was false or probably false.
