Hulk Hogan sues Laser Spine Institute for $50 million
Reported by: Colin Vassallo, on Jan 14, 2013 - 12:16:39 PM

The Tampa Bay Times is reporting that Hulk Hogan filed a lawsuit against the Tampa-based Laser Spine Institute, saying the clinic performed unnecessary surgeries that damaged his career.

The lawsuit was filed Monday morning in Pinellas-Pasco Circuit Court and it seeks damages of $50 million. In addition to claiming unnecessary surgeries, the lawsuit also says the Laser Spine Institute used an endorsement from Hogan without permission or payment.

The attorneys for the Hulkster said that there was negligent conduct on the part of the company that resulted in past and future income of approximately $50 million. They claim that after numerous prominent spine surgeons recommended traditional spinal surgery for Hogan, Spine Institute advised him that that kind of surgery would effectively end his career.
