So, the judge has the same last name as the defendant? Or is the article mistaken?

This is a shocker.  Must be more to the story than we know.  Still, it makes me feel sick to know that the hero was not there to defend himself.

If he had any decency he would consider this a win and just take $1 for his damages.....but Ventura isn't a nice guy.

Why are you all so hostile towards Ventura? The jury is effectively taking his side. That he was damaged by lies about him.

He started the lawsuit when the defendant was alive. Libel and slander are laws.

Are we not a nation of laws, when we have a jury verdict by our peers?

The widow now has to pay this from his estate...it's not as if they were rich and could afford this...just saying if he had any decency he would take the win and not the 1.8mil......

the widow doesn't have to pay anything; the damages run only against the estate, not against anyone else, including the widow.  and there will almost certainly be a settlement on the damages for less than face.

Ventura had the option of stopping the lawsuit when Kyle died. Ventura wasn't damaged by this. His name wasn't revealed in the book. Kyle only mentioned his name on Opie and Anthony's Show, and then Ventura went on to Alex Jones' Show to say that he may sue him. Ventura did this for publicity.

Why a settlement? It was already reduced from what he originally was seeking.

Other than the fact he is the biggest douche in the universe for bringing the lawsuit in the first place, all the witnesses defended Kyle, and we have a jury system that treats lawsuits like winning the lottery and drool over celebs?
