ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Jury selection entered a second day in the civil trial between pro wrestler Hulk Hogan and a popular news website.
Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, is suing Gawker for $100 million for publishing a sex tape of him and the wife of a Tampa radio personality.
The Tampa Bay Times reports attorneys will likely face several challenges, from Bollea's celebrity status to jurors' perceptions of sex, as they feud in a Pinellas courtroom to keep the six jurors, and three alternates, that each side likes the most.
Whoever sits in the jury box will determine if Gawker violated Bollea's right to privacy when it published the video of the former professional wrestler having sex with his best friend's wife. Bollea's attorneys say it garnered 7 million views.
