Gawker files motions seeking new trial in privacy case
ST. PETERSBURG - A New York news website has filed motions in a Florida court seeking a new trial in the Hulk Hogan invasion of privacy case.
In motions filed this week, lawyers for Gawker Media asked for a new trial or for the amount in damages awarded to the former pro wrestler be vacated or drastically reduced.
Hogan sued Gawker after it posted a video of him having sex with his then-best friend's wife. Hogan said he didn't know he was being taped.
In March, a St. Petersburg jury sided with Hogan, who sued after the website posted a portion of the video. Hogan was awarded $115 million in compensatory damages plus an added $25.1 million in punitive damages, for a total of $140.1 million.
