Jury deliberations to continue in Ventura case

After a weekend break, jurors weighing whether former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura was defamed by "American Sniper" author Chris Kyle are entering their fifth day of deliberations.

Jurors have had the case since last Tuesday. They're expected to return to the federal courthouse in St. Paul Monday morning to continue their work.

Ventura says Kyle defamed him by fabricating a story in his best-selling memoir. Kyle wrote 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 had serious doubts about its truth.

Ventura's attorney has asked for millions in damages.

Kyle died in Texas last year
