Hulk Hogan sues spinal clinic
Clearwater, Florida - World Wrestling Federation (WWE) star Hulk Hogan has filed a lawsuit against the Florida-based Laser Spine Institute, saying the clinic did unnecessary surgeries that damaged his career.
The lawsuit seeks damages of $50m (almost half a billion rand).
The Tampa Bay Times reports that Hogan filed the lawsuit Monday. He filed under his real name, which is Terry Bollea.
In addition to claiming unnecessary surgeries, the lawsuit also says the Laser Spine Institute used an endorsement from Hogan without permission or payment.
The Laser Spine Institute says it is aware of the lawsuit, but to protect patient privacy it does not want to discuss details of the case.
