Gawker won its lawsuit against the F.B.I. on Wednesday when a federal judge in Florida ordered the bureau and the Executive Office of United States Attorneys to give the media company evidence related to an F.B.I. investigation into Hulk Hogan’s sex tape.
As a result of the ruling, evidence related to the recording—evidence that was discovered during a now-defunct F.B.I. investigation—could find its way into Hogan’s invasion of privacy suit against Gawker.
