Big news of the day: Hulk Hogan takes down Gawker to the tune of $115 million!

The latest celebrity civil trial verdict is in. Hulk Hogan has just taken Gawker to the cleaners for $115 million for publishing his sex tape. Gawker is liable for invasion of privacy, says a Florida jury.

I guess this verdict means Hogan owns Gawker now. But I dunno. This amount of money awarded was a little more than double what Erin Andrews got for what was an even more humiliating invasion of privacy in my opinion. I notice the folks at Above the Law are convinced this latest verdict is not going to stand up on appeal. This really is an insane amount of money awarded. Still, it is a big win for the Hulkster. Hulkamania!!!
