Yesterday, a Florida jury awarded a total of $25 million in punitive damages in the Hulk Hogan sex tape trial, hitting Gawker Media with a $15 million judgment and its owner, Nick Denton, with $10 million.
Also, it assessed $100,000 against A.J. Daulerio, the Gawker editor who posted the edited sex video and wrote the post that accompanied it.
The punitive damages come on top of a $115 million after two weeks of trial.
