Ventura Defamation Lawsuit: What was the result?


The end result was a verdict in favor of Governor Ventura for nearly $2,000,000.00 for defamation and what’s also called unjust enrichment. So defamation covered the damages to Governor Ventura’s reputation, what he lost because of the story. And the unjust enrichment portion was what the jury considered to be an equitable share of the gains that the Kyle Estate made by selling the book and continuing to sell the book after Governor Ventura challenged the truth.
