Jury Awards Erin Andrews $55 Million In Lawsuit

The former ESPN reporter filed a lawsuit against a stalker and a Nashville hotel after she was secretly recorded naked.

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. 

Newsy's partners at WTVF say the hotel owner and operator will pay 49 percent of the $55 million, and Barrett will pay the remaining 51 percent. Andrews and her legal team said they are happy with the verdict
