Hulk Hogan vs Gawker Verdict

TMZ.com is reporting that Hulk Hogan won his case against Gawker, and won an astounding $115 million.

Hogan had only sued for $100 million, but the jury decided it wasn’t enough and bumped it up to $115 million.

The breakdown of the payout is as follows – $55 million for economic injuries and $60 million for emotional distress. He could get even more with punitive damages.

Hogan had argued that he had no idea he was being recorded when he had sex with his friend’s wife at their home in Florida back in 2007.

Gawker published 1 minute and 50 seconds of the video without Hulk’s permission. Hogan claimed it was the ultimate invasion of his privacy.
