The Hulk Hogan V. Gawker Trial
The Hulk Hogan V. Gawker Trial is expected to last 3 weeks and will start at 9am EST and end around 4:30pm EST Monday through Friday. Video provided in partnership with Crime Watch Daily.
The former Gawker editor who posted a sex tape of celebrity wrestler Hulk Hogan will stand witness in a Florida courtroom this week, as the website argues it exercised its press freedom in the 2012 release of excerpts of the secretly recorded video.
Hogan, whose given name is Terry Bollea, is suing Gawker Media for $100 million for posting the edited video showing him having sex with his then-best friend’s wife. The former wrestler has said he didn’t know he was being filmed when the video was made.
The civil case is being held in a St. Petersburg courtroom.
