His most recent feature film, The Internet’s Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and is the winner of the Writers Guild Award for Best Screenplay. In March 2016, a Florida jury returned a $140 million verdict in favor of Terry Bollea aka Hulk Hogan against Gawker Media for publishing a tape of him having sex with the wife of his best friend (shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge). As the verdict forced Gawker into bankruptcy, it was discovered that the case had been funded by Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel as a vendetta for past coverage of him and his personal life.
