Jerrold Bregman Quoted Extensively on Gawker Bankruptcy and Hulk Hogan Judgment
Jerry Bregman was recently asked by several publications to discuss Gawker’s filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, and what’s next for the embattled media company. Jerry was quoted by The Wrap, Politico, Los Angeles Business Journal and Financial Times. According to Jerry, Gawker’s latest move might mean that Hulk Hogan will not receive the full $140 million judgment from his invasion of privacy lawsuit, which surrounded the company’s 2012 publication of a sex tape depicting the former wrestler.
“I would expect, that when all is said and done, ultimately there would be a settlement with a substantial reduction in the amount of the claim,” Jerry told The Wrap.
