Hulk Hogan’s lawsuit over sexual assault claim dismissed as part of settlement

admin 0

HOLLYWOOD, California (Reuters) – Hulk Hogan, the former pro wrestler and television personality who was found guilty in 2011 of misdemeanor assault and misdemeanor battery for his then-girlfriend’s rape, has agreed to settle with the state of California, his lawyer said on Monday.

Hogan, who was a prominent pro wrestling figure, had been pursuing a $140 million verdict against California for nearly a year in the civil case that prosecutors said showed his behavior was in violation of state law.

The deal came after Hogan’s attorney, James D. Jacobs, told reporters in a conference call that Hogan had agreed to pay $100 million to resolve the lawsuit.

“I am pleased that this settlement will now go forward,” Jacobs said.

“The only thing I would say is that this is an excellent outcome for all involved.”

He said that Hogan would continue to fight the case, and said that it was important to him that the public had a full understanding of the case.

Hogans attorney, Michael R. Levin, said in a statement that the settlement “will enable Hulk Hogan to move forward in a responsible and respectful manner, and ensure that the Hogan family will not be further impacted by his criminal history.”

Jacobs said the settlement also would allow Hogan to begin working in the entertainment industry.

The settlement is subject to a court-ordered gag order.

Hulking Hogan sued the state in 2014, alleging he had been assaulted by his then fiancee, Brooke Hogan, who he later married in 2005.

Prosecutors dismissed the case in May of that year, saying they lacked evidence of any physical harm to the defendant.

Jacobs filed a motion to dismiss the case a week later.

The state agreed to dismiss it without admitting any guilt, but the judge in the trial had previously ruled that Jacobs’ motion to allow him to speak about the case was “in the public interest” because of its alleged link to Hogan’s guilty verdict.

Jacins had been working on a settlement deal with Hogan, but his work had stalled until he received word of the settlement on Monday, said his attorney, Kevin Kennedy, who has represented the former wrestler in similar civil cases.

Jacson has said in the past that Hogan’s sexual history was not disclosed in court, but Jacobs said the agreement was a non-disclosure agreement and would allow him and his team to discuss the settlement.

The settlement will be announced in coming days, Kennedy said.
