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.
