Hulk Hogan has been awarded $115 million in a case against news-site Gawker. Hogan who’s real name is Terry Bollea alleged that Gawker’s posting of his sex tape with the wife of a nationally known radio host, invaded his privacy.
“Mr. Bollea is exceptionally happy. This is not only his victory today, but also anyone else who’s been victimized by tabloid journalism,” his lawyer David Houston said outside the courtroom. Hogan stood quietly behind the lawyer, his sunglasses failing to conceal dried tears on his cheeks.
Hogan later tweeted “Thank God for justice!” You can find that, and the full story, including video of HH in court here.
