Hogan v. Gawker

Recently, wrestler Hulk Hogan (real name Terry Bollea) won a lawsuit against media outlet, "Gawker." The article sums up the reason for the lawsuit:

A Florida jury has awarded Hulk Hogan $115m after the gossip news website Gawker published a sex tape of the retired professional wrestler.

Mr Hogan's legal team argued the New York-based website violated his privacy and the video was not newsworthy.

Here's an artist rendition of Hogan as he made his way into the courtroom.

Hogan as he prepares to testify. Note the "Hulking Up" effect. I'm sure this played prominently in the win.

Hogan delivered the atomic leg drop after hitting defense counsel with a folding chair. Hogan was named champion of a celebrity's right to privacy. It is unsure if the new championship belt is as glamorous as the WWE title strap.
