A jury sided with sports reporter Erin Andrews on Monday and awarded her $55 million in her lawsuit stemming from a secretly recorded nude video. 

A stalker, Michael David Barrett, recorded Andrews naked in her hotel room in 2008 and later posted that video online. Andrews filed a lawsuit against the Nashville Marriott hotel owner and operator and Barrett, asking for $75 million in damages.

Barrett reportedly called the hotel and asked for a room next to Andrews, and the hotel complied.
