Attorney: Ventura deserves millions from Kyle
Ventura testified that Kyle invented a story about punching him in a California bar in 2006 after Ventura supposedly made remarks insulting Navy SEALs.
Ventura's attorney David Bradley Olsen said in his closing argument Tuesday he believes Kyle's estate has earned more than $6 million from the book. He suggested jurors award Ventura from $5 million to $15 million to compensate for what he said was the harm to Ventura's reputation.
An attorney for Kyle's estate argued that Ventura didn't prove that the story was false or that he was hurt financially.
