The out publisher of Gawker is still appealing the decision that he must pay wrestler Hulk Hogan $140 million, but in the meantime is seeking protection from the courts.
Now that the gay entrepreneur once outed by Gawker has confirmed he funded Hogan's lawsuits against out media kingpin Nick Denton, the wily publisher wants "an open and public debate."
