Erin Andrews Seeking $75M Judgment in Hotel Peephole Incident
The former ESPN reporter is suing on the basis of negligence and invasion of privacy.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Sportscaster and TV host Erin Andrews is seeking a $75 million judgment against the Marriott hotel chain and a man who admitted he made secret nude tapes of her in 2008.
The lawsuit, filed in Nashville in 2010, was amended this week to include the dollar amount the former ESPN reporter is suing for on the basis of negligence and invasion of privacy.
In 2009, Michael David Barrett of Westmont, Ill., pleaded guilty in federal court in Los Angeles to renting hotel rooms next to Andrews in three cities, altering the peepholes and shooting videos in two locations, in Columbus, Ohio, and in Nashville.
The lawsuit alleges the Nashville hotel agreed to Barrett's request to book a room next to where Andrews was staying.
Marriott declined to comment on pending litigation.
