Excerpts from the Court Opinion
The facts, according to the court were, “In 2006, [ Hulk Hogan ]  Mr. Bollea engaged in extramarital sexual relations with a woman in her home. Allegedly without Mr. Bollea’s consent or knowledge, the sexual encounter was videotaped. On or about October 4, 2012, Gawker Media posted a written report about the extramarital affair on its website, including excerpts of the videotaped sexual encounter (“Sex Tape”). [ Hulk Hogan ]  Mr. Bollea maintains that he never consented to the Sex Tape’s release or publication. Gawker Media maintains that it was not responsible for creating the Sex Tape and that it received a copy of the Sex Tape from an anonymous source for no compensation. “
“[ Hulk Hogan ] Mr. Bollea filed a motion for temporary injunction seeking to enjoin Gawker Media and others not participating in this appeal from publishing and otherwise distributing the video excerpts from the sexual encounter and complementary written report. Following a hearing, the circuit court issued an order on April 25, 2012, granting the motion for temporary injunction. “
The Court noted, “We are hard-pressed to believe that [ Hulk Hogan ]  Mr. Bollea truly desired the affair and Sex Tape to remain private or to otherwise be “swept under the rug.” For example, in March 2012, [ Hulk Hogan ]  Mr. Bollea called into TMZ Live, a celebrity and entertainment media outlet, and disclosed that he could not identify the woman in the Sex Tape because he had a number of “conquests” during the time it was filmed. Hulk Hogan – I Have NO IDEA Who My Sex Tape Partner Is, TMZ (March 7, 2012, 1:50 PM),”
“Furthermore, in October 2012, [ Hulk Hogan ]  Mr. Bollea appeared on The Howard Stern Show and professed that his good friend, Todd Alan Clem, known professionally as Bubba the Love Sponge, allowed [ Hulk Hogan ]  Mr. Bollea to have sex with Mr. Clem’s then-wife Heather Clem. Hulk Hogan – Yes, I Banged Bubba’s Wife, TMZ (October 9, 2012, 6:08 AM),”
“[ Hulk Hogan ] Mr. Bollea was certainly not shy about disclosing the explicit details of another affair he had while married to Linda Bollea in his autobiography. See My Life Outside the Ring at 187-88.”
