ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- The jury weighing whether former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura was defamed by the author of "American Sniper" has ended the week without a verdict.
Jurors are scheduled to resume deliberations Monday.
Ventura says author Chris Kyle defamed him by fabricating a story in his best-selling memoir. Kyle wrote that he decked Ventura in a California bar in 2006 after Ventura allegedly said Navy SEALs "deserve to lose a few."
To rule for Ventura, the jury must find by "clear and convincing evidence" that Kyle knew or believed his story was false, or that Kyle had serious doubts about whether it was true.
Ventura's attorney has asked for millions in damages.
Kyle died in Texas last year. The lawsuit is continuing against Kyle's estate.
