ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Testimony will continue Wednesday for a third day in the Hulk Hogan sex video trial, with Hogan's attorneys expected to call more witnesses.
The former pro wrestler, whose given name is Terry Bollea, is suing Gawker Media for $100 million for posting an edited version of a sex video. Hogan said he didn't know he was being filmed when he had intimate relations with his then-best friend's wife. The friend, Florida-based radio DJ Bubba The Love Sponge Clem, gave his blessing to the coupling and even handed Hogan a condom.
Gawker says the publication was a legitimate scoop because Hogan had talked openly about his sex life before, in forums such as Howard Stern's radio show.
The six-person jury may have to grapple with questions about how celebrity affects expectations of privacy.
