A Florida judge has rejected motions for a group of media outlets asking to make records in the Hulk Hogan sex video case public.

The judge responded to motions Friday. They had been filed a day earlier.

Hogan, a former WWE wrestler whose real name is Terry Bollea, is suing the news website 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, the judge sealed the records.

Media companies, including The Associated Press, were asking to open those records.
