The lawsuit accuses a talent agent, a radio company, two disc jockeys, and a lawyer of conspiring to cause Hogan emotional distress and economic harm by leaking the sex tape.

Gawker causes the lawsuit “ridiculous.” In a statement the company said, “Hulk Hogan is a litigious celebrity abusing the court system to control his public image and media coverage. …It’s time for Hulk Hogan to take responsibility for his own words, because the only person who got Hulk Hogan fired from the WWE is Hulk Hogan.”

Gawker is also appealing the ruling from the first lawsuit.
