Retired professional wrestler Hulk Hogan was awarded $115m after a gossip news website, Gawker, published his sex tape online.
Hulk’s legal team contended that his privacy was violated, while the leaked tape had no news value whatsoever.
The video in question was posted in 2012. It showcase Hulk having sexual intercourse with a wife of a friend. Hulk was accused for recording the event secretly.
Talking about the jury’s decision Hulk’s lawyer David Houston said, "This is not only his victory today, but also anyone else who's been victimised by tabloid journalism.”
