He was referring to a settlement in his four-year legal entanglement with former pro wrestler Hulk Hogan, whose given name is Terry Bollea.
Denton, whom a court originally ordered to pay Bollea $140 million for invasion of privacy, filed for personal bankruptcy following the verdict this past spring. The parties settled for $31 million this week, thus ending a story that started when Gawker posted a video of Bollea having sex with a friend’s wife. Gawker claimed that the First Amendment protected its right to publish the video.
Denton said in his post that the “settlement … allows us all to move on, and focus on activities more productive than endless litigation.”
