10 04 2016

Things have gone from bad to worse for Gawker Media, as a Florida jury trial over its publication of a sex tape concludes.

The same jury that ordered Gawker Media to pay $115 million on Friday for violating the privacy of Terry Bollea, better known as professional wrestler Hulk Hogan, has heaped on an extra $25 million in punitive damages. The six-person jury said Gawker should pay an additional $15 million, while company founder and CEO Nick Denton was hit with an extra $10 million, according to a Reuters report from the courtroom.
