Jesse Palmer says Andrews performed well despite stalking

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) ESPN football analyst and former NFL quarterback Jesse Palmer has testified that sportscaster Erin Andrews did a good job covering college football games after she discovered in 2009 that someone posted nude videos of her on the Internet. Still, he noted that she was quieter when she was off-camera.

The defense in a civil trial is trying to challenge claims Andrew suffered severe and permanent emotional damage as a result of the nude videos taken by a stalker in a hotel room.

Andrews has filed a $75 million suit against the stalker and the companies that both owned and managed the Marriott at Vanderbilt when Michael David Barrett altered a peephole on a hotel room door and shot the videos of her in September 2008.

The defense maintains that the stalker is to blame.
