on Hulk Hogan and privacy

I don’t think I see a lot of material from Gawker and its related internet outlets (I’m not sure how extensive they are), and to an extent that’s a function of my effort to avoid it because of its reputation.

Having done a little bit of consulting on understanding how juries make decisions, I find the outcome of Hulk Hogan’s suit against Gawker pretty interesting. This article with reactions from jurors says a lot. I don’t know much about Florida law on the appeals process for this sort of thing; Nick Denton and Gawker may win an appeal. But unless the trial judge made some significant errors that can lead to a reversal, based on what the jurors have to say about their decisions, it sounds like Gawker is in a tough spot.
