Hulk Hogan vs Gawker jury selected, trial to start Monday

The jury selection in the Hulk Hogan vs Gawker trial wrapped up today with the final 70 jurors making one more trip to the courtroom to see who are the unlucky ones who have to endure three weeks of courtroom drama.

A total of nine jurors made the cut, including 3 alternates. Those who will be on the jury are 4 women and 2 men.

Hundreds of potential jurors were summoned during the week and many of them filled out a 14-page questionnaire to see how much they know about Hulk and Gawker. The Judge also asked them to stay off the Internet so they don’t get swayed one way or another, a request which wasn’t met by a lot of enthusiasm. Some jurors got dismissed after saying some outrageous statements, a very good way to get out of jury duty.

The trial will be starting on Monday, March 7.
