Jury Awards Erin Andrews $55 Million Over Nude Videos

Sportscaster Erin Andrews won a $55 million judgment Monday against a stalker and the owner of a Nashville, Tennessee, hotel where he recorded secret nude videos of her.

The judgment, announced by a state circuit court Jury in the late afternoon, is less than the $75 million Andrews had sought from the owner and operator of the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University and the stalker, Michael David Barrett, who has already served a prison sentence.

The jury deliberated for less than eight hours, splitting the blame — and the damages — roughly equally between Barrett, who will have to pay about $28 million, and the two companies, which are on the hook for about $26 million.

Andrews originally included Marriott International in the suit, but the judge dismissed the company early in the process, ruling that it wasn’t responsible for security at a hotel run locally by a franchisee.
