Hulk Hogan Suing For $100 Million

What actually happens in the US when people sue for these ridiculous amounts? Does anyone actually receive the inflated sums such as this?

Headline Breaking News From TMZ:

Quote:
Hulk Hogan just announced ... he's suing for more than $100 MILLION over his leaked sex tape.

Hulk's attorney spoke at a news conference in Tampa moments ago, announcing two lawsuits filed today by the wrestler -- one against Bubba the Love Sponge and his ex-wife for illicitly recording Hulk without his permission, and another against Gawker for publishing the tape.

Hulk's attorney says the wrestler is seeking $100 MILLION in damages from Gawker stemming from the leaked footage. It's unclear what he's seeking from Bubba and Bubba's ex Heather Clem.

Hulk's attorney says Bubba and co.'s actions were "illegal, outrageous, and exceeded the bounds of human decency."

In addition to forking over damages, Hulk's team wants Bubba, Gawker, and anyone else in possession of the sex footage to turn it over asap in order for it to be destroyed forever.

Hulk's other attorney David R. Houston also reiterated -- they will continue to go after anyone who republishes the footage with a vengeance.

Except for the fact that he clearly leaked it to generate interest in him in the mainstream media

God bless America, land of neverending ridiculous lawsuits for no reason

I was literally just thinking that him and Bubba could have worked this together.

Hogan's a TNA talent so the thread goes here in the TNA section. This is just another chapter in the crazy life of Mr. Bollea.

Re: Hulk Hogan Suing For $100 Million

am i the only one who still thinks this is all fishy, we all know hogans past and how he loves to work everybody, it would not surprise me if this was all staged by both guys, then they split the profits

i don't know what to believe really with this man

WOW It's like some people don't know how to separate wrestling from the real world in this forum, I really doubt Hogan is trying to work an angle with Bubba by releasing a sex tape to swerve you.

Part of me thinks Hogan can't seperate real life from wrestling.
