(WDAY TV) -- If the name Chris Kyle rings a bell, you may have heard about his run in with former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura.

Ventura sued the "American sniper" author in federal court in Minnesota over a portion of his book. It claimed Kyle decked Ventura in a 2006 bar fight over unpatriotic remarks made by Ventura.

Ventura, who's also an ex-SEAL, says the punch never happened. Kyle's Minneapolis attorney says it's too early to know how his death will affect the lawsuit.
