Fox sports reporter Erin Andrews wants $75 million from Marriott International and other parties involved in a 2008 incident in which Andrews was filmed while nude from a peephole in her hotel room.
Andrews’ case centers on Michael David Barrett, who was sentenced to 30 months for stalking Andrews, and alleges that Marriott employees tipped off Barrett to Andrews’ location and put him in a room next to her so he could film through the peephole, according to The Smoking Gun.
Barrett manipulated the peephole so that he could film Andrews undressing and doing other activities while naked. He eventually uploaded the videos to the Internet. (RELATED: Erin Andrews Still Haunted By Nude Video Leak [PHOTOS])
The January trial is expected to last ten days, and several witness, including hotel employees and individuals expected to describe the level of emotional suffering Andrews experienced, will be called to testify.
