Closing arguments Friday in Hulk Hogan lawsuit
ST. PETERSBURG - A judge says jurors will hear closing arguments Friday in ex-pro wrestler Hulk Hogan's lawsuit against Gawker Media over a sex video.
Judge Pamela Campbell announced it Thursday. Also on Thursday, lawyers for Gawker showed Hogan a promo video of him wearing T-back underwear and parodying the Miley Cyrus "Wrecking Ball" video.
They also played a video of a Hulk Hogan deposition in which Hogan discussed his wrestling persona, his true identity, branding and celebrity.
Hogan, whose given name is Terry Bollea, is suing Gawker for $100 million for posting the video, contending it violated his privacy. It depicted the former wrestler having sex with the wife of his then-best friend, radio host Bubba The Love Sponge Clem. Both Hogan and the woman said they didn't know they were filmed.
