Hogans Going To Trial

| Filed under: Legal MattersHulk Hogan

mx0052241__opt1.jpg

It seems like 2008 is not shaping up to be a good year for the Hulk and his clan!

The family of John Graziano, the young Iraq war veteran who was left in a semiconscious state after Nick Hogan crashed his car back in 2007, has filed suit against the Hogans.

The family is suing Hulk Hogan and his wife Linda. They have also listed Nick Hogan as a defendant and Daniel Jacobs, the individual in the car racing against Nick, as a co-defendant.

In February, Daniel Jacobs pleaded no contest to a charge of reckless driving. He was fined $500, sentenced to 90 days of probation, had his driver’s license suspended for 90 days and ordered to complete 25 hours of community service.

The suit alleges that Nick negligently operated his Toyota Supra by racing against another car. The other car, a Doge Viper driven by Danny, is also owned by Hulk Hogan. The allegations are that the Hogans knew of Nick’s passion for speeding and were aware of his modified, speed racing vehicles.

To make matters even worse, reports that Hulk purchased alcohol for Nick and his friends on the day of the accident, have made it into the suit.

The suit is alleging that the Hogans were negligent and are also directly liable for the wreck.

As for Graziano, he is not in a complete vegetative state. Though part of his frontal lobe had to be removed, he can still respond to heat and light. On few occasions, he has breathed without a ventilator.

That doesn't seems like much a life to us, though. So sad.

The suit does not say how much money they are asking for, but reports show that the Graziano family has already spent more than $1 million in medical care.

You can't put a price tag on the pain and suffering caused by that crash, but John's family definitely deserve much more than $1 million!

    Not to defend the Hogans here but lets not negate the fact that had that kid been wearing a seatbelt he prob would have walked away from the crash same as Nick did..he is not an "innocent victim" here. His fault is equal with Nicks.

    I have to say that when HS students learn drivers ed, they are told never to start the car until everyone has their seat belts. Nick and the Hogans were irresponsible and need to pay.

    The Hogan family has my sympathy for all the pain they have suffered lately, but they are liable and should be found as such. The pain of the Graziano's can not be measured, it just can't.

  33. Sarah says – reply to this


    33

    I agree, they deserve to get upwards of a million dollars - mostly because the Hogans (namely Nick) have acted like such assholes, such media-whores through all of this. The Graziano family will never be the same.

  34. nicoleeee says – reply to this


    34

    i was personally shocked when i kept on reading about all the information that had come to the light.. about hogan buying alcohol to his son and him cheating on Linda… i mean, they looked and portrayed such a good and positive family life on the tv show that its just so weird to see that he really isnt all that he led on to believe he was.
    but i do hope they sue him because it was nick's fault for speeding and it was hulks fault for buying them alcohol!
    and i think they should just let graziano off of life support… thats NO way to live.. im sure its horrible to know that you arent dead but not being able to un-numb yourself and come back to full life

  35. lil_gaucha says – reply to this


    35

    This is tragic, but the kid got in the car. He didn't wear his seatbelt. He knew there'd be racing. He is partially to blame.
    No amount of money is going to bring him back to what he was. And it won't heal the pain his family is suffering.
    But hopefully this whole thing will do some good — both for Hulk and his irresponsible offspring.

    meanwhile. The BOLLEA FAMILY continue to get hired by HOLLYWOOD IDIOTS who now are making CELEBRITIES out of people who deserve to be in prison. If i give booze to my child under AGE i would be facing prison time, but because these are celbrities wanna be's. Oh well thats different lets give them JOBS and music careers, while JOHN'S family gets to watch him waste away. (Jacob's conviction was a slap on the wrist) NICK'S WILL BE THE SAME

Shame on those parents….they just want to live thru the kids.They let thier daughter date a 30 yr old man and dress like a hooker…..Come on dad what is up with that????????

  44. Andrea says – reply to this


    44

    That kid got in the car by choice. The Hogans are responsible for their own children, not the choices of their kids' friends. The Hogans should not have purchased the kids alcohol, if that allegation is true.

    Sure he is responsible but what is about John? He surely knew that Nick has been drinking and he still got into the car.
    If I am just stupid enough to let a drunken friend drive I am responsible too - and if it turns out well 99x it can turn out bad another time and this was happening that night…

    Just too make you think a bit!

    You know… Brooke Hogan needs to stop bitching about her father's affair. Instead, she should write about how what her brother did to his friend… his current condition… and that she is praying for him and his family instead of worrying about herself. At least she can breathe without medical assistance.

  52. David says – reply to this


    52

    Was the Graziano man an adult capable of making responsible choices for himself? Yes. In fact he was 21. Did he make that choice to put on his own seatbelt? No. Did he as the adult influence the child Nick into racing? Don't know. Have I taught my own child do demand a seatbelt when she is driving? Yes and she has had that test as well….no seatbelt no drive. But I am sick of babysitting other adults. Graziano chose not to wear a seatbelt. He was an adult. It is really sad that he died, but again personal responsibility especially when a seatbelt would have saved him. And no, I would not feel the same if an innocent bystander was killed.

    54

    Re: nicoleeee – This is going to sound very cold, but the family might be leaving him on life support for damages they can recover after the trial. As long as the kid isn't in pain, I suppose it's worth it to teach the Hogans a lesson.

  55. paranormalcosmos.com says – reply to this


    55

    I think the Hogans are almost totally at fault — just my opinion. The poor kid evidently has a big chunk of his brain gone, literally. My prayers and thoughts are with the Graziano all the way.

    56

    could the law suit be the real reason for the hulk's divorce? could this lessen the settlement amount of john being that they have theri money seperate? could the daughter have made up the story about hulk cheating with her friend? all seems a bit weird!

  57. J says – reply to this


    57

    wow! That's sad.. I remember seeing the reality show. I only remember Nick constantly racing. I know Hulk and his wife were only trying to be cool parents, but the consequences show how not cool it could be.

  58. Jordan says – reply to this


    58

    Seriously, fuck the Graziano family. If THEY didn't raise such a douchebag of a son who would know not to get involved with racing, this wouldn't have happened. He's not a fucking victim, he is an ADULT you morons. As if the "Iraq War Veteran" (stupidity rearing its ugly head yet again!) was forced at gunpoint to drive in the car with the Hogan kid. Fuck rice rockets anyways, they should all crash for driving like assholes. Guys should just masturbate more often, not drive with thier dicks.

  59. dyana says – reply to this


    59

    Just a horrible story of irresponsiblity all around. Ironic Hulk was declared Father of the Year in one of the last episodes of their reality show. Guess the screwing of his daughter's friend and providing alcohol to the minors before they drag race in his unsafe high speed vehicles, pretty much ruins his chances for a back to back win this year, huh?

  61. He made the choice to get in the car says – reply to this


    61

    He made the choice to not wear a seat belt. I'm taking a guess, but I'm sure he was just as much into the racing as the other guys were. Why does everyone in society have to become a check chaser? it's not going to bring him back to normal. People need to stop placing blame on others for their own personal choices. Gee, why doesn't his family go after the Circle K that sold the beer? Crap, don't stop there, go after the brewery too. How about the city of Clearwater for the palm tree in the median. Sue em' all.

    are we forgetting that the kid in the hospital made the decision to be in the car race as well…he could have asked to be let out of the car before the racing started…not saying the accident is his fault or he deserves to be in the condition that he is in, but he chose to be there so he is not just some innocent bystandard….

    I think the Hogans have paid for a lot of the medical bills and John is now in a veterans hospital which is free for veterans. Granted, the Hogans are responsible for what Nick has done because he is a minor but no matter how much money John's family gets, it will never make John better. And the money will not lessen their pain for their son.

  72. buckle up says – reply to this


    72

    Nick was speeding. Nick was drinking. Nick was racing. Hulk owned the car(s). Hulk possibly bought the alcohol consumed. Officially though it was the speeding and the road conditions that caused the crash. I dont understand how Graziano's family can feel the Hogans are 100% responsible. Their son (who is 22 and 4 years older than Nick) was the one not wearing his seat belt. He consiously got into a car with a known speeder (refer to Nicks 4 speeding tickets + the guy was in Nicks Pit crew). And honestly Im pretty sure all the guys in both cars were gunning for a street race. Its a shame that some one ended up getting hurt, and Im not saying that Nick shouldnt be held accountable, but where does his responsibility end and Graziano's begins.

  73. GRAZIANO PARTY TO BLAME says – reply to this


    73

    I THINK THE GRAZIANO KID IS PARTLY TO BLAME. HE WAS DRINKING ALONG WITH THEM, HE CHOSE TO GET IN THE CAR WHILE THEY WERE RACING (HE KNEW THE DANGERS OF RACING), AND HE CHOSE NOT TO WEAR A SEATBELT. I THINK THE FAMILY NEEDS TO REALIZE HIS RESPONSIBILITY. I DONT THINK THE HOGANS SHOULD PAY ALL THE MEDICAL EXPENSES BECAUSE IT WAS THE BOY'S WRECKLESS DECISION…

    IF I DECIDE TO JAYWALK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET INSTEAD OF WALKING IN THE CROSSWALK, WHILE TALKING IN MY CELLPHONE AND A CAR COMES OUT OF NOWHERE AND HITS ME, AM I SUPPOSED TO BLAME THE PERSON WHO HIT ME, EVEN IF THEY WERE SPEEDING? NO, BECAUSE I WAS AT FAULY FOR NOT WALKING AT THE CROSS WALK (WHICH IS ILLEGAL) AND ALSO TALKING ON THE PHONE AND NOT PAYING ATTENTION…

    74

    The Graziano's have spent $1 million in medical care? YAH RIGHT. The Hogan's have been paying for that shit, you should write "The Graziano's racked up $1 million dollars in bills for the Hogan's To pay". The Hogan's already said they would pay the medical bills. If this kid wasnt a MARINE would anybody even care about this case? He knew what he was getting into the moment he got into that car. Two words. SEAT BELT. Which this kid wasnt wearing. The Hogan's arent bad people, Perez is just trying to make them look that way. The Graziano's are pretty disgusting people, The Hogan's are already footing the mediacal bills, and now They want MORE. Go get jobs and quit living off of the Hogan's. It sucks that this happend to them but its not like Nick did it on purpose. Shit happens!!!!

  76. ALL the boys involved are to blame says – reply to this


    76

    why should this graziano guy get anything. as far as i am concerned he participated in the street racing too. he knew what was going on & just because he wasn't behind the wheel doesn't make him innocent in my view. the law won't see it completely that way but i think he is partially at fault for his condition, especially if he had been drinking with nick earlier that day. i feel sorry for him & i know the costs of medical care are extreme. however, his parents need to stop blaming others for their sons condition & see that if their son had better judgment he won't be lying on a hospital bed. this was a terrible accident & all the boys involved are to blame. sorry but its true.

And my husband is a cop..I know they say you never unbuckle a dead person, but he has a lot of stories of people who are alive because they DIDN'T have on a seatbelt but you just don't hear about those as often. They have the douchebag mom on VIDEO bragging about how she loves to drag race and outrun the cops. These people should be fucked up the ass and drained of every cent they have. They are trailer park trash and they think they are frigging American royalty. They suck and they should pay for this poor guys care. He will be a vegetable for the rest of his life..money will never bring him back. Nick should be in jail for life as well.

    What would you do if that was your child in that hospital bed? The family has every right to sue the pants off the Hogan's. Life's a BITCH! Hulk and his wife are responsible for Nick if he was under 18 at the time of the accident. Prayers to the hurt boys family.

    And another thing…….They are trying to get Hulk Hogan for buying them alcohol? Wasn't that Graziano Kid like, 24 at the time of the incident? He could have and probably did buy them the alcohol. Money brings out the worst in people (not in all situations) but this Graziano family is sickening. No amount of Money is going to make this kid the same again, they are just trying to get rich quick.

    How sad! I hope that Graziano's family gets a lot of money out of the Hogans and that there is a lot of press around it. Celebs should not be placed above the law and justice just because they're celebs. (Ahem…case in point…Miss Hilton)

    87

    Re: keekee – Yah LIFE IS A BITCH…….Shit happens. Which is why its disgusting how this family is acting like their kid was all innocent in the matter. Nobody made him get in the car or not wear his damn seatbelt. This kid is at fault too. And he is like 24 years old. Why would he want to hang out with a 17 year old anyway? He is to blame just as much as Nick. Sure Nick was driving but SHIT HAPPENS!!! Right?

  88. Lisa says – reply to this


    88

    I hope they lose everything! You encourage your kids to drag race and you deserve to lose it all. They are nothing but stupid white trash!

  89. Haake says – reply to this


    89

    Maybe if you ADD kiddies actually remembered what they taught you in driver's ed (assuming you are even old enough to drive and judging by some of these post you aren't) the driver is the one responsible for his passengers, period.

    Nick didn't get slammed by another car, he was the one racing!
    His bad judgment put his friend's life in danger, and whether or not his friend was drunk too does not matter legally if the driver acted in a dangerous manner.

    So it is Nick's fault 100%, but I would also blame his parents for buying this stupid kid a dangerous, fast car when they already knew he had multiple speeding tickets.

    Typical rich hollywood parenting skills; just give your underachieving brats whatever they want, because you feel guilty for not actually being a parent when they needed it.

    The laws in most states say it is the driver's RESPONSIBILITY to make sure his passengers wear seat belts! So, Nick is TOTALLY to blame for this. Some of you people making excuses for him are SICK

    Re: always trying to excuse his actions

    i disagree ….
    how many times have you heard the expression.
    "REMEMBER TO PUT YOUR SEAT BELT ON"
    THE PASSENGER ISNT A TWO YR OLD. HE SHOULDVE KNOWN BETTER.
    HOW DO YOU NOT PUT YOUR SEATBELT ON WHEN YOUR IN A RACE.
    STUPID… HE IS AT FAULT JUST THE SAME AS THAT LITTLE HOGAN SHIT.
    THE HULKSTER SHOULD BE ARRESTED FOR BUYNG THEM THE BOOZE.
    THE SON SHOULD LOSE HIS LICENSE, DO COMMUNITY SERVICE, AND BE PUT ON PROBATION.
    THE GUY IN THE COMA SHOULD HOPEFULLY HAVE A FAST RECOVERY.
    NOT THAT ANY OF THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN.
    FUCK IT. SMOKE A DUBE AND DONT WORRY ABOUT IT

    Please let me being by saying that I, personally, went to high school with John Graziano and knew him to be nothing but a kind, great guy. Now, I understand that it is easy for people outside of the situation to place some blame on John for being in the car without his seat belt on, especially after the "racing" began. I agree that it was an extremely irresponsible (and, unfortunately, life altering) choice on his part. That being said, Nick Hogan, as a RESPONSIBLE DRIVER of the vehicle, should have been insistent that John wear his seat belt, and more so, should not have RACED ANOTHER CAR WITH A PASSENGER THAT WAS NOT BUCKLED IN! My God - there are three parties here at fault.

    I only hope that justice is served in an unbiased manner, and for peace for all of the families involved.

    i feel so bad heather…
    heres the deal little girl.
    he was stupid to go to iraq and stupid to get into a car without a seatbelt.
    i dont feel bad for anyone who makes asshole decisions. sorry.
    not saying that he deserves what he got…. but he didnt have to be put into that position in the first place.
    being smart will save you from being stupid… if you understand my meaning..

    Re: Florida Girl – Do you think that Nick should have wiped John's ass too? OMG…..He should of KNOWN to put his seatbelt on himself without somebody having to tell him like a damn kid. And its COMMON SENSE to put your seatbelt on in ANY car. Geez.

    That is so sad i hope the Graziano family wins and get more than a million because those bills are going to be piling up but no money in the world is going to heal all the pain and suffering. The Hogans especially stupid idiotic Nick Hogan should be ashamed of themselves that whole family is screwed up I hated the show they had it was fake and you can clearly tell that Linda and Hulk Hogan were okay with his son's passion for racing and would let him speed on the streets it's on an episode of Hogan Knows Best.
