BREAKING: Hulk Hogan awarded $115m in Gawker sex tape case

Hulk Hogan awarded $115m in Gawker sex tape case

A Florida jury has awarded Hulk Hogan $115m (£79m) after the gossip news website Gawker published a sex tape of the retired professional wrestler.

Mr Hogan's legal team argued the New York-based website violated his privacy and the video was not newsworthy.

The case, which pitted freedom of the press against a celebrity's right to privacy, has been closely watched.

Looking forward to seeing the asshole factory burn down. Feel free to remember these names if they pop up on other sites.

There's more punitive damages (generally a multiple of the ruled value) to be judged yet.

And they have to drop US$50M before appeal.

They don't have that money. RIP in pieces Gawker.

The best part about hearing a piece of shit rag like Gawker being BTFO is that you don't have to feel sorry for the employees.

What happened to the Wikipedia pages of the Gawker sites shortly after the verdict was hilarious to watch, not gonna lie :D

Guess those pythons where too much for Nick Denton to handle, now let's hope the appeal falls through for Gawker, too ;)

For the ones out of the loop, Hogan was listed as Gawker owner.
