MIAMI, March 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company which operates, announced updates today in Hulk Hogan's ongoing $100MM lawsuit against Gawker over the sex tape they released. Hulk Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, is seeking $100 million in damages, claiming the sex tape damaged his reputation and he still suffers humiliation following the release of the tape. However, Gawker is alleging that "its posting of the video and accompanying article is protected by the First Amendment," according to The NY Daily News.

Gawker's publisher and former editor both took the stand this week at trial. Former Gawker editor, A.J. Daulerio, who was editor at the time when the sex tape was released in 2012, "acknowledged limits to the video's newsworthiness, including its depictions of Hogan's anatomy," an article in Reuters states. Gawker publisher, Nick Denton, also testified, and he made statements indicating he didn't consider whether or not the celebrity would be hurt if the video was posted online, and that celebrities have "a smaller zone of privacy" than other individuals.

The sex tape, now three years old, has been at the center of the dispute. Legal-Bay, a lawsuit cash advance firm, has been involved with lawsuits involving different celebrities for a variety of claims. Please visit the company's website at for more information.
