Erin Andrews files lawsuit over peephole incident
You may have forgotten about Erin Andrews’ peephole incident, but she hasn’t. Now, Andrews is suing.
PEOPLE reports that Andrews has filed a $10 million lawsuit in connection with the 2008 incident, where Andrews was videotaped through her hotel peephole while she was naked. The suit was filed last year, but has been refiled to ensure that the statue of limitations didn’t run out.
In the suit, Andrews is asking for $6 million from the West End Marriott and $4 million from stalker Michael Barrett. Barrett was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison in 2010.
Andrews’ suit alleges that the hotel was guilty of negligence for allowing Barrett to learn that she was staying at the hotel and book a neighboring room. Prosecutors allege that Barrett had previously videotaped Andrews in other cities.
