Gawker Founder Nick Denton Writes A Lengthy Rebuttal To Hulk Hogan's $140 Million Victory: 'We Will Be Vindicated'

Filed under: Legal MattersHulk Hogan

no title

Nick Denton is NOT backing down!

As we reported on Monday, Hulk Hogan was awarded $140 million against Gawker Media for posting his sex tape with his former best friend's wife.

On Tuesday, the blog's founder wrote a lengthy post on his website where he plans to fight the verdict.

He said:

"Emotion was permitted to trump the law, and key evidence and witnesses were kept from the jury. We have had our day in trial court, and we lost. We will have our day back in appeals court, and we will be vindicated."

The 49-year-old journalist believes the case wasn't so much about the wrestler's sex life; it was about the racial slurs Hogan said in the footage.

"Hogan filed the claim because he was terrified that one of the other tapes, which memorialized his rant about his daughter dating "fucking n***ers," might emerge. As I have come to learn, Hogan himself put it in a text message to his best friend… days after we published our story: ‘We know there's more than one tape out there and a one that has several racist slurs were told. I have a [pay-per-view special] and I am not waiting for anymore surprises….' I had suspicions, but it is now clear that Hogan's lawsuit was a calculated attempt to prevent Gawker, or anyone else who might obtain evidence of his racism, from publishing a truth more interesting and more damaging than a revelation about his sex life."'

The British writer believes the trial was one-sided from the start.

"The plaintiff's lawyers, with the occasional assist from our witnesses, successfully painted Gawker as representative of an untrammeled internet that good and decent people should find frightening and distasteful."

no title

Here's another wrinkle to the ongoing drama between Kesha and Dr. Luke

The Tik Tok singer had her preliminary injunction against the music producer denied on Friday, but now Dr. Luke — born Lukasz Gottwald — has found some legal standing through his lawyer, Christine Lepera.

The attorney released a statement on Monday indicating that in the minds of the music producer's camp, Kesha's sexual abuse allegations were "unconvincing" and that she had no standing to void the recording contract.

Lepera's statement also has one very important part: Kesha is free to make and release music elsewhere, even under the recording contract as it currently is, without penalty from Sony or Dr. Luke.

Here's Lepera on Kesha's ability to record music elsewhere, in part:
