Jesse Ventura Sues Wife of Slain Navy SEAL Chris Kyle

Lawyers for Ventura have asked a federal court to continue his lawsuit against Chris Kyle — who was killed in February by a young veteran he was mentoring — by substituting Kyle’s wife, Taya, as the defendant. Ventura last year sued Kyle, a decorated former SEAL and author of “American Sniper,” claiming that the book’s description of a California bar fight defamed him.-Excerpt From the StarTribune

This is a really a shame, and I can’t see this doing anything positive for Jesse’s reputation. It’s has also ruined the movie Predator for me.
