ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — In a story Sept. 25 about Hulk Hogan's sex video trial, The Associated Press reported erroneously that a judge had ruled on a motion filed Thursday by various media companies. The judge actually ruled on motions made by the media filed earlier in the summer.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Judge orders FBI records sealed in Hulk Hogan case

Judge orders FBI records in Hulk Hogan sex video case against Gawker sealed

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — A Florida judge has ruled on motions in the Hulk Hogan sex video trial.

Judge Pamela Campbell ruled Friday that, for now, FBI records involving the video can only be seen by lawyers for Hogan and the news website Gawker.

Hogan, a former WWE wrestler whose real name is Terry Bollea, is suing Gawker for posting a video of him having sex with a woman who at the time was married to Hogan's friend.

The tape was leaked to Gawker, and the FBI investigated. Gawker filed a public records request in federal court for more information about the investigation, and the judge ordered it released. But when it was put into public record in the civil lawsuit, she sealed the records.

Media companies, including The Associated Press, are asking to open those records. A hearing is scheduled Thursday in that matter.
