A federal appeals court has thrown out the $1.8 million in damages that WWE Hall Of Fame Jesse Ventura was awarded in a defamation lawsuit against Chris Kyle.
The Associated Press is reporting that the court of appeals also sent Ventura’s defamation claim back to the district court for a new trial.
“Ventura’s counsel’s closing remarks, in combination with the improper cross-examination of two witnesses about Kyle’s insurance coverage, prevented Kyle from receiving a fair trial,” wrote the judge who ruled against the WWE Hall Of Famer and former Minnesota Governor.
