Hogan awarded $25.1 million more in punitive damages

Mar 21, 2016 - by Colin Vassallo

– After over three hours of deliberations, the 4 women and 2 men jury who last week awarded Hulk Hogan $115 million in his lawsuit against Gawker, came back with their punitive damages. The three plaintiffs were ordered to pay $25,100,000 in total damages to Hulk Hogan on top of the $115 million. Gawker received a $15 million bill, its founder Nick Denton was handed a $10 million bill and AJ Daulerio, who has zero assets and is in $27,000 debt was ordered to pay $100,000. After the verdict was read, judge Pamela Campbell ordered the sex tape sealed. Gawker will be appealing the decisions and have a good chance of paying much less from the $115 million, if anything at all. They still have to post bond which will likely end up being around $50 million until the appellate court hears the case.
