Erin Andrews seeking $75 million in revision of 2010 hotel lawsuit

Friday October 16th, 2015

Former ESPN reporter Erin Andrews is now seeking $75 million in a revised civil suit stemming from a 2008 incident at a Nashville hotel.

Andrews said a stalker was given access to film her through a door peephole at the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University, where she was staying to cover a Commodores football game at the time, according to court documents obtained by The Tennessean. She accused the hotel and others of negligence in allowing a stalker to set up in an adjacent room and film her changing her clothes.

Andrews’s attorneys reportedly filed a revised version of the original suit earlier this week in Davidson County (Tenn.) Circuit Court. The initial lawsuit, filed in 2010 and amended in 2011, asked for $10 million and made similar claims.

Attorneys for the hotel asked a Nashville circuit judge to order Andrews to clarify her past filings and specify how much she sought. Andrews’s new suit raises the demanded total sum from the hotel and other parties: Marriott International, Windsor Capital Group and David Barrett, the man who was arrested by the FBI and pleaded guilty in 2009 to stalking Andrews.

A 10-day trial is set to start Feb. 22.
