Hulk Hogan's Sex Tape Must Be Taken Offline, Says Judge
Last fall, Gawker posted a video of wrestling legend Hulk Hogan having sex with a woman named Heather Clem. The tape, which was a glorious 30 minutes long, stayed up on the website after a judge ruled that the site hadn't breached its first amendment rights. Now, all that's changed. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a Florida judge granted Hogan a temporary restraining order yesterday, and required that Gawker and all its affiliates pull the tape and send whatever copies they have of it to Hogan's lawyers.
The reason for the change in ruling is that the case was pulled from federal court and taken to a Florida state court, where it went in front of a different judge.
Florida federal Judge James Whittemore had initially ruled against Hogan, but Judge Pamela Campbell of the Sixth Judicial Circuit in Pinellas County in Florida ruled in his favor.
Hogan began his wrestling career in 1977, and went on to become one of the most famous wrestlers in the WWF (now WWE).
Rumors have circulated that Heather Clem -- wife of Bubba Clem, a former friend of Hogan's -- has made sex tapes with other men with the blessing of her then-husband.
