Gawker Media has issued a response to Hulk Hogan’s $100 million lawsuit.
The company – which released a one minute and 41-second clip of Hogan pounding Heather Clem on its website – has asked the judge to throw out the wrestler’s suit because Hogan already admitted in a 2009 book that he had cheated on wife Linda.
