Erin Andrews Hotel – Erin Andrews is suing a Nashville hotel for $10 million for being videotaped through a peephole without her knowledge.
The incident took place three years ago, but now the sports reporter has refiled court papers for a lawsuit naming several parties believed to be involved in the videotaping.
She’s seeking $10 million for invasion of privacy, asking $6 million of the West End Marriott where the incident took place and another $4 million from the man who taped her.
Michael Barrett, who was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison in 2010 after pleading guilty to stalking her, followed the TV personality to at least three cities where he shot footage of sportscaster through hotel peephole doors.
Reuters reports that Andrews filed the suit in 2010, but her attorney recently refiled so it would move forward before the statute of limitations runs out.
Andrews has been described as one of the most attractive sportscasters on television, a label for which she has received substantial media attention.
As of 2011 she is a co-host of the ESPN entertainment show ‘College GameDay’ and a contributor for ‘Good Morning America’ on the ABC network.
Aside from Barrett and Marriott International, Radisson Hotels and five other entities are named in the suit for negligence and invasion of privacy in connection with the secret videotaping.
In 2011, Andrews worked with U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar to enact a new federal anti-stalking law.
