Trial of Hulk Hogan lawsuit to enter second day

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Former pro wrestler Hulk Hogan is expected to take the witness stand again during the second day of trial in his civil lawsuit against Gawker Media.

The trial continues Tuesday in downtown St. Petersburg.

Hogan is suing Gawker for $100 million.

The core issue: Did Gawker have the right to post one minute and forty one seconds of a sex tape filmed of Hogan and his then-best friend's wife?
Hogan and his lawyers say no, that Gawker invaded his privacy.

He says the posting of the video caused him severe emotional distress.
Gawker says the publication was a legitimate scoop because Hogan had talked openly about his sex life before, in forums such as Howard Stern's radio show.

The trial will explore questions about celebrities and expectations of privacy.
