Two law experts stopped by the 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS studios Tuesday to talk about former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura's defamation trial and his victory.

The jury awarded Ventura $1.8 million Tuesday, on the sixth day of deliberations.

University of Minnesota Media Law and Ethics Professor Jane Kirtley and Hamline University Law Professor Joe Daly have been weighing in on the case from the start. They both talked about what's next for Ventura and for Kyle's defense attorneys, and what this case could mean for future, similar cases.
