Erin Andrews seeks $75 million from Marriott, stalker
Former ESPN broadcaster Erin Andrews is suing a Nashville hotel and the man who was caught peeping into her room for $75 million, an amended lawsuit filed on Tuesday revealed.
Andrews was staying at the West End Marriott in 2008 while covering a Vanderbilt football game for ESPN.
Andrews alleges in the lawsuit that Marriott employees helped Michael Barrett to video tape her through a peep hole.
The lawsuit alleges Barrett contacted the hotel to see if Andrews was a guest, disclosed her room number and gave him a room next to the broadcaster.
Barrett taped Andrews in the nude through the peep hole of the front door and later posted the videos to a web site.
He was convicted for felony stalking of Andrews in 2009.
Andrews filed an amended suit in 2011.
According to The Smoking Gun web site, defense attorneys filed a motion to the court asking Andrews to provide a specific damages amount. The attorneys argued Andrews’ claims were “unreasonably vague and ambiguous.”
Andrews’ attorney, Randall Kinnard, filed the amended lawsuit on Tuesday asking for $75 million.
