Erin Andrews Refiles $10 Million Lawsuit for Peephole Incident
Erin Andrews refiled her $10 million lawsuit against Michael Barrett, the man who videotaped the ESPN reporter while she was naked through a peephole, and the Nashville Marriot where the incident occurred in 2008.
Andrews is suing the Marriot for $6 million for negligence and Barrett for $4 million for emotional distress, according to Reuters.
Andrews filed her original lawsuit last year. The ESPN reporter decided to refile the lawsuit to make sure that the statute of limitations didn’t run out in her case.
At Barrett’s hearing Andrews said that she still suffers from anxiety and public humiliation due to the incident. Andrews said:
“I’m being victimized every day…and I did nothing to deserve it.”
Andrews says that the hotel is guilty of negligence for telling Barrett where her room was and for allowing him to book a room next to her.
Do you think Erin Andrews should be compensated for the emotional stress from the peephole incident? Is it worth $10 million?
