What a complete fuckwad

 

 

Jesse Ventura’s lawsuit against “American Sniper” author Chris Kyle -- purportedly the deadliest-ever American servicemen -- can proceed with the war hero’s widow as a substitute defendant, a judge has ruled.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan reportedly wrote in his decision concerning Ventura’s defamation suit, “(if) a party dies and the claim is not extinguished, the court may order substitution of the proper party.”
Boylan subsequently named Taya Kyle, executor of her husband’s estate, as replacement defendant, the StarTribune of Minneapolis reports.
Ventura, whose resume includes noted turns as Minnesota governor, WWF wrestler, Navy SEAL, and Hollywood actor, sued Kyle over an unflattering anecdote the sniper slipped into his 2012 book.
Specifically, Kyle alleged that during a 2006 tete-a-tete, the duo duked it out at a California bar after Ventura badmouthed the second Iraq War, the United States, in general, as well as then-President George W. Bush.
 
Kyle, who served four tours of duty during the second Iraq War, was fatally shot in February by a fellow vet he and friend Chad Littlefield had squired to a Texas gun range.
The shooter, Eddie Ray Routh, is said to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, and Kyle was trying to aid the troubled former soldier. Routh, instead, tragically turned the gun on Kyle and Littlefield, killing both men.
Kyle is thought to be the most lethal American serviceman in history, with upwards of 160 confirmed kills in combat.
Ventura – who had his own nom de guerre -- “The Body” -- during his wrestling career and who famously appeared in “Predator,” a cult Hollywood classic – was not named in Kyle’s book, but instead therein referred to as “Scruff Face.”
Kyle later told TV audiences during an interview that “Scruff Face,” was, indeed, the former Minnesota chief executive.
 A Ventura attorney had argued Taya Kyle should be substituted as a defendant because Chris Kyle's estate will continue to profit from book sales and a recent movie deal, and Ventura has a right to protect his reputation.
Taya Kyle's attorney had argued Ventura would be better off dropping the case, saying that going forward would give the perception that Ventura had little regard for loved ones of deceased war heroes.

This is pretty pathetic.  I wonder why is he still even in the US.  Didn't he storm off to Mexico vowing never to return because his panties were in a wad about something?

I don't want to live on the planet anymore.





He was talking about a fucking fistfight in a book, and the already rich douchebag doesn't want people to think he lost the fight?
True or not dude and his lawyer sound like faggots. Phone Post

So Chris Kyle supposedly got physical with Ventura for speaking the truth? Or are we all still pretending the war in Iraq was a just cause in the name of "supporting the troops?"

Team America. Fuck yea. Phone Post

I've talked with several SEALs about this. He was active duty in a UDT and on a Reserve SEAL team.

Most of them consider him a SEAL.

That said, I think Ventura is nuts.

He should drop this and move on. No good can come of this IMO.

</blockquote><br /> According to the book it was more about disrespect shown towards a friend (a former SEAL who lost his eyesight) while they were in a bar after another SEAL's funeral. <br /><br />Kyle's friend said he wanted to meet Jesse and Jesse didnt really give him the time of day and was kind of an asshole. He then went on and on about the Iraq war and when Kyle confronted him and asked him to basically respect that there were people there mourning a friend they lost he told them "they deserved to lose a few".

Time and Place.

This supposedly happened at a bar where Kyle and other Seals were toasting a friend who had just died in combat. A few of the guys family members were there and were getting upset at Ventura's rants. They asked him to please calm it down and it progressed into him getting decked.

What about injunctive relief?

Thread title could have read: "Ventura sues owner to book and movie rights of defamatory account"

Actually it was. There were both UDTs and SEALs throughout the 60s and 70s. They were all turned into SEAL teams in the early 80s.

If that scenario didn't happen and Kyle was using the thinly-veiled reference to Ventura to sell books, Ventura has a right to set the record straight if he can prove it to the standards of the court.

Ventura has said he was in the place where Kyle said it happened but he(Ventura) said Kyle didn't deck him. I'm willing to bet a few Seals step forward if this does go to court and said it did.

Yeah, didn't he served during the Vietnam War as part of the 101st Airborne Division, including operations in Cambodia and then was a member of Alan "Dutch" Schaefer's private military team, which was hired by the U.S. military and the CIA for a rescue mission in the Central American country of Val Verde?

I'd be very surprised if this makes it to court.

There will likely be either some settlement or, if enough team guys are going to come forward against Ventura, he drops the case.

I agree. Allot of Seals are rubbed the wrong way by Ventura and this might be a way to shut him up and embarrass him. I bet it gets dropped.
