Erin Andrews Awarded $55 Million in Peephole Video Lawsuit

Erin Andrews stands in court while awaiting the judgment in her peephole video lawsuit on Monday afternoon (March 7) in Nashville, Tenn.

The 37-year-old sports reporter was staying in the Nashville Marriott hotel back in 2008 when a stalker named Michael David Barrett used a hacksaw to tamper with the peephole in her room and secretly record video of her unclothed without her consent.

Erin sued the hotel and the stalker for $75 million in a civil lawsuit. The hotel argued that the criminal actions of Barrett, who was sentenced to two and a half years in prison, were solely his responsibility.

Ultimately, the judge awarded $55 million to Erin. The jury found that Barrett was 51% at fault and he is required to pay upwards of $28 million while the hotel was 49% at fault and will have to pay more than $26 million.

It was reported by ABC News that Erin signed autographs and took photos with the jurors after the amount was announced.

    I don’t think it was a judge that awarded her that much it was the jury, this is a ridiculous amount a jury would come up with.
    And this will be contested and most likely reduced by a judge.

    Well, Erin kinda set the tone by suing for $75 million
