Weighing free speech against privacy, a Florida jury has decided to uphold the sanctity of the latter by turning in a $115 million verdict against Gawker over its 2012 posting of a Hulk Hogan sex tape.


Gawker didn't do itself any favors with the jury by claiming any sex tape of someone 5 years old and above was fair game.

It's not a sextape when you do it with a 5 year old, it's a rape tape.

To bad it didn't put them out of business, Gawker is nothing but sleaze.

A sex tape of anyone under 18 is child porn, and Gawker thinks it's fair game...I hope that was at least a misquote or something.

maybe the tabloids will finally be held accountable for what they publish

everyone has an expectation of privacy so long as they aren't in public

I love wrestling. The best male drama show of all time. That being said, whoever hates Hulk Hogan can go fuck themselves. The guy is awesome. I met him once. Love that brother.

It very well may. Their net worth used to be higher - around $320 mill at best. The valuation of their company is clearly going to be lower than this, and the jury is seeking to award punitive damages as well. Losing half the value of the perceived worth of a company in a single ruling will likely deep six them.

Eh, this is only round one. This was heading to an appeal no matter who won. If the pre-trial rulings really did favour Hogan that will come back around on the appeal. Both sides have enough money to drag this out through every possible court circuit in the state.

Gawker has to put up the money in order to appeal.
