Gawker refusing to comply with court order over Hogan tape



gawker.com posted:

Yesterday the Hon. Pamela A.M. Campbell, a circuit court judge in Pinellas County, Fla., issued an order compelling Gawker to remove from the internet a video of Hulk Hogan f***ing his friend’s ex-wife, as well as a 1,400-word narrative of the video written by former Gawker editor A.J. Daulerio and 466 user-submitted comments. Here is why we are refusing to comply.

    They half complied. They took down the highlight video, but they kept the article.

    Problem is, by not obeying the judge’s order, the people running Gawker.com could, and more than likely will, be held in contempt of court. It seems like they don’t care if their refusal results in the site’s hosting service being forced by the judge/court to shut the website down. Oh, and I find it funny that people at the link are trying to justify the article being kept up by saying the article is analogous to WBC’s statements of “God Hates Fags” & such, even though what WBC says is more in line with hate speech. Well, I hope that Gawker will be satisfied with its action when such actions result in their website being shut down, which more than likely will happen with their insistence of refusing to obey a court order.

    Freedom of the Press. **puts on chicken little hat** If Gawker is forced to take that down then the next thing you know you’ll have WWE & TNA suing Gerweck.net to take down less then thrilling reviews of their shows or spoilers or other news, etc.

    @Freeman Cooper; Gawker isn’t likely to be “shut down”, it’s not a little “mom & pop” website like this one, it’s a multi-hundred-million dollar media conglomerate.

    The good ol’ “Let’s hide behind the 1st Amendment trick.” I don’t think this is what our forefathers wanted it to be used for. Why on Earth would you want to make a play by play transcript of a Hogan Sex tape anyways?

    I rarely write responses, however after browsing a bunch of comments on this page Gawker refusing to comply with court order over Hogan tape –
    Gerweck.net. I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Is it simply me or does it seem like some of these comments come across like they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at other places, I would like to follow you. Could you make a list of the complete urls of all your shared pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
