A Florida judge has denied Gawker's motion for a new trial in the Hulk Hogan sex-video case and won't reduce a $140 million jury verdict.

Judge Pamela Campbell issued the ruling Wednesday.

Gawker and Hogan faced off again in the St. Petersburg courtroom. It's the latest chapter in a yearslong legal fight.

Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, won the $140 million verdict against Gawker in March.

Hogan sued Gawker after it posted a video of him having sex with his then-best friend's wife. The three-week trial was a lurid inside look at the business of celebrity gossip and a debate over newsworthiness versus celebrity privacy.

Earlier this month, Hogan sued Gawker again, saying the gossip website leaked sealed court documents with a transcript that quoted him making racist remarks.
