Hulk Hogan Awarded ANOTHER $25 Million in Gawker Case

With a bank balance already set to be substantially Hulked up thanks to last week’s $115 million court ruling, Hulk Hogan now stands to gain an additional $25 million in punitive damages in his legal battle against gossip site Gawker.

A Florida jury ordered Gawker ($15m), the site’s owner Nick Denton ($10m) and former editor A.J. Daulerio ($100k) to pay the massive sum for leaking a sex tape featuring Hogan without his permission. This follows the decision made last week by the SAME jury to award the former WWE champion the jaw-dropping nine-figure sum.

With the amount now standing at a whopping $140 million, it is no surprise that Gawker’s attorney Heather Dietrick once again vowed to appeal the ruling. In a statement the Dietrick had this to say, “There is so much this jury deserved to know and, fortunately, that the appeals court does indeed know”.”So we are confident we will win this case ultimately based on not only on the law but also on the truth.”

Hogan originally filed suit against Gawker in October 2012 for posting a minute-long clip of him in bed with Clem in a tape that was recorded 10 years ago. He also previously sued Bubba the Love Sponge for unspecified damages, accusing him of leaking the footage to the media. However, the suit was ultimately settled and Hogan’s former friend made an on-air apology.
