So how does it work? Do they pay him 115mil then appeal or do they lodge an appeal before paying the 115mil? Is he likely to see anywhere near the full amount?

They already announced they want to appeal, but the precedent is made.

I'm eagerly awaiting the enormous amount of butthurt from all the paparazzi who will get flooded with stalking charges and the like now.

The majority of paparazzi only film celebrities when they are in public. Hulk Hogan won this one because it was private.

Actually before they can appeal because of FL. law they have to put $50mil in an escrow account. I doubt Gawker has $50mil liquid cash just sitting around.

Appeal then pay, but hulk can challenge any sales or transfers of assets. Right now gawker owes 115million and that's treated before payouts and bonuses so while he probably won't get the full some he'll probably get the rest of what gawker has and the CEO won't get any more money

What happens next is Gawker is run into the ground with legal fees and delay tactics and Hogan gets the ten million dollars of remaining value as the company is split up, reformed, and all contracts and buildings re-sold into TotallyNotGawkerAnymore LLC.

They can't actually do that now that they lost. Hulk can challenge any sale to force them to sell at market value none of that $1 sale crap. But there is nothing stopping Denton from making gawker 2 electric boogalo
