Gawker Founder Testifies In Hogan Sex Tape Case

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The founder of Gawker Media is scheduled for a second day on the witness stand in the Hulk Hogan sex video trial.

Nick Denton will be questioned by Gawker’s lawyers Tuesday and will likely be cross-examined by Hogan’s lawyers as well.

On Monday, Denton spoke about his rise in the publishing world and how he founded Gawker.

Former pro wrestler Hulk Hogan is suing Gawker for $100 million for posting an edited video of Hogan having sex with his then-best friend’s wife. Hogan said he didn’t know he was being filmed at the time of the encounter. He maintains it was an invasion of his privacy.

The civil trial is being held in St. Petersburg. This is the second week of testimony.
