A Florida judge yesterday ruled that Gawker must pull from its websites the infamous sex tape that exposed the world to Hulk Hogan’s third “python.”
Since the edited footage went live last October, Hogan has filed a $100 million lawsuit and has been in and out of court wrangling to have his wang wiped from the web.
At every turn the legal system has sided with Gawker and its First Amendment rights.
But now the Hollywood Reporter brings news that Judge Pamela Campbell of the Sixth Judicial Circuit in Pinellas County, Florida, has granted Hogan’s temporary restraining order motion, thus ordering Gawker to take down the tape:
In addition, the judge has ordered to be delivered to Hogan’s attorneys all versions and copies of the full-length sex tape, and all excerpts, clips, photos and transcripts of it.
