They didn't post a link to news. Gawker posted a link to the leaked script that Gawker had encouraged readers to send to them, the leaked script itself. It looks like Gawker probably uploaded the script.
On Jan. 22, Gawker "actively solicited" readers to submit the leaked script, the complaint alleges. The complaint further notes that there was "nothing newsworthy or journalistic" about Gawker's "facilitating and encouraging the public's violation" of Tarantino's copyright.
"Their headline boasts... 'Here,' not someplace else, but 'Here' on the Gawker website," the documents state. "The article then contains multiple direct links for downloading the entire screenplay through a conveniently anonymous URL by simply clicking button-links on the Gawker page, and brazenly encourages Gawker visitors to read the screenplay illegally with the invitation to 'Enjoy!' it."
