Greg Hearing and Chad Thomas Mentioned In Law360

TAMPA, FL – April 1, 2020 – Labor and employment attorneys Gregory A. Hearing and Charles J. “Chad” Thomas, of GrayRobinson’s Tampa law firm office, were mentioned in the Law360 article, "Hulk Hogan Sex Tape Insurance Suit Moved To Georgia." The article discusses how a Florida federal judge has transferred Hiscox Insurance's suit seeking to avoid coverage of Cox Radio Inc. in a dispute over pro-wrestler Hulk Hogan’s sex tape to Georgia federal court, saying it’s the proper venue because of all the witnesses living in the state. The judge sided with Cox, represented by Hearing and Thomas, saying that while Hiscox filed its action first, there are compelling circumstances to transfer, including that Hiscox’s action raises mainly affirmative defense claims, making Cox the “true plaintiff” in the dispute. In addition, Cox’s suit is broader and the dispute in that case effectively encompasses Hiscox’s action, the judge wrote.
