I posted this in Thing of Your Day, but damn it, this topic is too good that it needs another mention.
Last July, Hulk Hogan sued Gawker in a $100 million lawsuit for posting a sex tape featuring the wrestler. The trial, which started last week and wrapped today (which you can watch here as an archived livestream), wound up being more rewarding for Hogan than anyone expected--Gawker now owes Hogan $115 million, which they cannot afford.
