The article states:
In a nine-page order, Circuit Judge Pamela Campbell wrote that because of the seriousness of Hogan’s allegations against the New York-based news and gossip website, Hogan is entitled to a “forensic inspection” of certain Gawker employees’ computers, servers, emails and text messages. Her order went so far as to list the specific terms an investigator can search, including “racist,” “Hulk Hogan,” and “DVD details.”
Campbell allowed Hogan’s legal team to conduct the investigation based on the seriousness of the allegations, that Gawker not only violated his privacy by publishing the sex tape, but for also leaking a transcript to the National Enquirer, which featured Hogan using a racial slur several times.
The judge’s order takes effect next month, giving Gawker’s media team ample time to file an appeal, which it stated clearly that it will do.
