Prof. Kirtley Discusses Appeal in Jesse Ventura Libel Case with Local Media

Professor Jane Kirtley was a guest on WCCO News Radio's The John Hines Show discussing the upcoming appellate argument before the Eighth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Tuesday, October 20 in the Jesse Ventura libel case against the estate of deceased American Sniper author Chris Kyle. Kirtley was also quoted in a Star Tribune article entitled "The Media Bring Out the Big Guns as the Ventura Verdict Goes to 8th Circuit." She was quoted as saying: "What I worry about is setting a bad precedent that is going to make it difficult not only for journalists to do investigative reporting, bur for serious authors to write unauthorized biographies."
