HULK HOGAN WINS $115MILLION LAWSUIT AGAINST GAWKER OVER LEAKED SEX VIDEO

Hulk Hogan was awarded $115million in damages by a jury in Florida after the website posted a leaked sex video that showed him engaging in intercourse with his best friend’s wife. The jury awarded Hulk Hogan $55million for economic injuries and $60million for emotional distress. 

 

Hulk Hogan broke down in tears in the courtroom as the foreman read the jury’s verdict.

Gawker will appeal the case, but under Florida law will have to hand over the monetary damages

The six-person jury took just five hours to deliberate on Friday, and found in favor of Hogan on all counts.

Hulk Hogan and his team had only been asking for $100million in their lawsuit for invasion of his privacy. 

Denton and Editor A.J. Daulerio sat emotionless in the courtroom while the jury read out the verdict. The two men were both found personally liable in the case

Gawker posted the two-minute video in 2012 after editing down a 30-minute version they received from an anonymous source that had been taped showing Hulk Hogan and Heather Cole engaging in intercourse in July of 2007.
