The jury deliberated for six days before awarding former Minnesota Governor, Jesse Ventura $1.85 million in damages. The award includes $1.345 million for "unjust enrichment" and $500,000 in defamation damages. Unjust enrichment is usually awarded in cases where the court finds that an individual unjustly made money at another's expense. It amounts to restitution. Ventura stated that the scene included in the book, which did not even mention Ventura by name, was a total fabrication on Kyle's part. Ventura claimed that the late Chris Kyle, a Navy SEAL sniper had claimed that he punched Ventura in a bar back in 2006. The alleged punch came after the governor's statement that the SEALs "deserved to lose a few" in the war. Kyle, who is noted to have the most confirmed kills by a sniper in the history of the U.S. military, referred to the scene in American Sniper that he "punched out a celebrity" while he was mourning the death of Navy SEAL and future Medal of Honor recipient, Master at Arms 2nk Class Michael Monsoor.
