ESPN sideline reporter Erin Andrews has filed a lawsuit again against the man named Michael Barrett who pleaded guilty to videotaping her while naked through a peephole and the Nashville Marriott Hotel where the incident took place in 2008. Erin Andrews wants a payback of $10 million in damages for what happened at the West End Marriott Hotel, near the Vanderbilt campus, according to the Tennessean.
Andrews is suing this Nashville-area hotel for $6 million and the man who pleaded guilty to illicitly filming her, for $4 million. Andrews originally filed a lawsuit in 2010 against the hotels for giving out her room number to her stalker and against the stalker himself. Barrett pleaded guilty to filming the ESPN star naked and was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in federal prison. According to court records obtained by Reuters, Andrews refiled the lawsuit to make sure the statute of limitations did not run out.
"I've filed this lawsuit to hold accountable those who put my personal safety at risk and who allowed my privacy to be invaded while I was a guest at their hotel as well as for actually stalking me and making my most personal moments public," Andrews said in an initial statement after the lawsuit was filed.
