    There’s no way that amount will hold up on appeal, it will be reduced by a judge.

    $55 million for a video that most ppl have never seen? How about awarding $55 million to ACTUAL rape victims or to the families fallen military men and women.

    Nothing like a couple of millions to overcome public humiliation

    Doubt she will see a dimes worth of the money, unless she settles with the Hotels for a hell of a lot less. The perp is in jail, probably doesn’t have two pennies to rub together besides a few million.

    maybe if they get raped in a marriott. it’s a major corp. she’s suing so the amount is in line w/their holdings.
