A jury ruled Monday that Hulk Hogan will be awarded $25 million in punitive damages in his lawsuit against Gawker Media, in addition to the $115 million that he won last week.

That $25 million includes $10 million from Gawker owner Nick Denton, along with $15 million from Gawker and $100,000 from former Gawker editor-in-chief A.J. Daulerio.

That brings the total in the lawsuit, which Hogan brought against Gawker for the 2012 release of his sex tape, to $140 million. The first $115 million were compensatory damages for Hogan -- the $15 million punitive ruling, however, is meant to deter defendants and others from engaging in similar conduct in the future.
