Gawker denied new trial in Hulk Hogan sex-tape lawsuit

A Florida judge on Wednesday denied Gawker’s motion for a new trial in the Hulk Hogan sex video case and won’t reduce a $140m jury verdict.

Judge Pamela Campbell did not elaborate on her decision, the latest development in a years-long legal fight between Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, and the gossip website.

    Excellent. It’s time entities like “Gawker” realized there are consequences for actions. The Hulk – whatever his limitations – did not deserve the exposure, contempt, and ridicule “Gawker” exposed him to.

    • It is a weird case.

    • Remember what they did to Mayor Rob Ford — flagrantly engaged in a $200,000 public extortion / blackmail scheme to boot the man out of office. Simply because he was conservative, a family man, football coach for marginalized youth, and millionaire philanthropist. An easy-going friendly Mayor who had economic smarts and saved Toronto taxpayers $1 Billion dollars that were being scammed by the garbage-collection Unions. Ford’s alcohol and drug use didn’t get out of control until there was a systematic mobbing campaign by the Left against him. I think they broke the man’s heart.

      Just remember, cocksucker Gawker, Ford’s in heaven now organizing angels. And just remember that Hulk Hogan was his personal friend:

        I agree.

        • Predictions were that if the gawkers lost, the damages would sink them. The Judge in fact awarded the full amount — $140 million is no joke, but “he who laughs last laughs best”. And “He who sits in the heavens laughs” (Psalms 2:4).

          I think Ford was sued three times by SJW’s (usually on the taxpayer dime or with Union/NDP/Lib money) and he won every time, without pocketing a penny — he still had to pay out of pocket hundreds of thousands of dollars even though he won. I hope the Hogan case establishes precedent — first time I’ve ever seen the social justice phonies pay a penny.

          Without waxing too philosophical, I think the metaphysics are obvious:
          – the law of reaping what you sow
          – the law of karma
          – the law of the street: “what goes around comes around”.

            Ricardo, that was a wonderfully philosophical summation! Hats off to you!

    Even weirder the co founder of Paypal underwrote Hulk Hogan’s civil action

    According to him he was outed as gay some years ago and decided enough’s enough. Still what does Theil’s patronage tell us about the donocrats and the media? What’s he really after to make Gawker an example?

    Mind you i’ ve always regarded Denton with mix of contempt and loathing. To destroy people because he can is deeply disordered. However Theil’s participation makes me wary
