Emergency Hearing Held In Hogan Sex Tape Lawsuit

Emergency Hearing Held In Hogan Sex Tape Lawsuit


There was an emergency hearing that took place in Tampa, Florida today in Hulk Hogan’s ongoing lawsuit against over the release of his sex tape with Heather Clem. Gawker had appealed the temporary injunction that Hogan received ordering all of the video clips and descriptions of the tape removed from their website. As we previously reported, Gawker had taken down the videos but refused to remove the description.

Gawker prevailed in the hearing as the court agreed to stay the order regarding the description of the tape, citing First Amendment rights. The removal of the footage was not argued against.

Hogan has now filed a motion asking that Gawker be held in contempt because they refused to adhere to the court order and placed a link to the footage on another site as soon as they removed the footage from their own. The argument by Hogan’s lawyers is that the link violates the order Gawker is under and that Gawker should pay monetary damages as a result.

    Hogan needs to get used to the fact that this tape is never going to go away… Once BTLS and Clem released this footage (doesn't matter to who as it most likely would've gone to the highest bidder), it was going to be plastered all over the internet permanently. This video is on more than just Gawker's websites, but many torrents, tube sites, and everywhere else. I really don't think Gawker is going to be held responsible, but more than likely Heather Clem is going to be, but sadly for Hogan Clem doesn't have anything worth suing over…

    Many celebrities have done pornos before, even a tna knock out have done pornos that is on the Internet. None of them are tripping about it. I wonder why hogan is throwing a fit about it

      It's more so because Gawker purchased and posted it without his permission. In nearly every other case with celebrities doing porn, it was under a contract and they were paid. Hogan in this case wasn't paid as Heather Clem and BTLS sold the video clip to Gawker.
