Sportscaster’s Lawyer Describes Shock Over Nude Photos
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A lawyer for Erin Andrews says the sportscaster was shocked, humiliated and traumatized when she discovered that someone had secretly filmed her nude and posted the video on the Internet.
Andrews has filed a $75 million lawsuit against the owner and manager of the Marriott at Vanderbilt as well as the man who pleaded guilty to stalking her.
In opening statements in the trial Tuesday, Andrews' attorney said the hotel's owner and manager should be held responsible. But their attorney said Andrews' stalker was solely to blame.
In 2009, Michael David Barrett pleaded guilty to renting a hotel room next to Andrews in three cities, altering peepholes and shooting videos in Columbus, Ohio, and Nashville.
