Erin Andrews' $75 million lawsuit against a Marriott Hotel is set to begin this week. The lawsuit comes nearly eight years after Andrews was videotaped undressing in a Nashville hotel. Jury selection on the civil trail starts Monday.
The Fox Sports Reports is suing the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University for $75 million, accusing the hotel of negligence, infliction of emotional distress and invasion of privacy. In 2008, Andrews was videotaped by stalker Michael David Barrett. He rigged peepholes, allowing him to videotape the then-ESPN reporter undressing. Barrett pled guilty to stalking and shooting the videos in 2009. The videos were also posted online.
The lawsuit originally included Marriott International as a defendant, but the judge dismissed them in January. The only defendants left
"As we have maintained since this matter first came to our attention, however, Marriott International was not responsible for what happened to Ms. Andrews, and we are pleased that the Court has dismissed Marriott International from the case," the statement read. "Marriott International continues to be sensitive to the serious nature of this matter and remains committed to the safety and comfort of our guests."
Andrews increased her demands from $10 million to $75 million in October. The Tennessean reports the trial is expected to run for 10 days.Back to the Top News Newsfeed
