WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan is possibly facing some more bad news if several media outlets get their way.
The Tampa Tribune is reporting that a group of media outlets, including The Associated Press, have requested that the Pinellas County Court in Tampa, Florida unseal records related to the Hulk Hogan lawsuit against Gawker Media.
The media outlets reportedly want a one minute excerpt and review of his leaked sex tape with Heather Clem. If the court agrees with the media, everything from that investigation will become public.
This is obviously not good for Hogan’s damaged image.
The civil trial over the alleged sex tape leaking is currently set for March 2016.
“It’s highly unusual for this much secrecy to surround a civil proceeding,” said Charles Tobin, a lawyer for Holland and Knight who is representing the media companies. “Ordinarily, whether it’s a celebrity or an average citizen, once you ask the court to help solve a dispute you open the proceedings up to public review. What’s going on in Hulk Hogan’s case certainly is not the norm when it comes to public transparency of the courts.”
