Deadline reported the following:
Terry Bollea (aka Hulk Hogan) has just been awarded another $25M in punitive damages in his invasion of privacy lawsuit against Gawker Media, after receiving a whopping $115M on Friday from a Florida jury. On Friday, they gave Bollea $55M in compensatory damages and another $60M for emotional damages. Prior to jury deliberations Monday, Gawker attorney Michael Berry told the jurors that $115M was “punishment enough.” Still, the ruling came back and awarded Bollea another $25M. According to the court, Gawker was told to pay $15M, owner Nick Denton was ordered to pay $10M, and former editor Albert J. Daulerio has been ordered to pay $100K.
