Hulk Hogan was granted a temporary restraining order against Gawker relating to his sex tape on Wednesday. As a result, they'll have to pull the 1-minute teaser video from its networks and deliver all versions of the sex tape to Hogan's legal representation.

Hogan's initial suit against Gawker failed as Florida federal Judge James Whittemore denied an injunction on grounds that what Gawker had published was newsworthy and that the Supreme Court had recognized that even minimal interference with the First Amendment freedom of the press causes an irreparable injury.

Hogan dropped the federal lawsuit and re-filed in state court.
