Hulk Hogan has won his lawsuit against Gawker. The wrestler was awarded $115million in damages by a jury in Florida after the website posted a leaked sex video that showed him engaging in intercourse with his best friend’s wife. The jury awarded Hogan $55million for economic injuries and $60million for emotional distress. Hogan broke down in tears in the courtroom as the foreman read the jury’s verdict. Gawker will appeal the case, but under Florida law will have to hand over the monetary damages.
Do you think $115 million was a fair and reasonable amount for the economic and emotional damage Hogan suffered?
