- The following is from Hollywoodreporter.com:

“A federal judge overrules Gawker’s attempt to fight the battle in a federal — rather than a Florida state — courtroom.

In wrestling parlance, Hulk Hogan has just prevailed into pushing Gawker into a more favorable ring to fight a $100 million lawsuit over his leaked sex tape.

On Wednesday, a judge determined that Gawker’s attempt to remove Hogan’s lawsuit from Florida state court into a federal courtroom was improper. Hogan now has a chance to show how his privacy was invaded before a hometown judge.

To recap, Gawker posted a short excerpt in October of a 30-minute Hulk Hogan sex tape as well as an essay by A.J. Daulerio that muses about how “we love to watch famous people have sex.””
