In 2008, Michael David Barrett booked the hotel room next to Andrews and filmed her while she was changing. Barrett later tried to sell the footage, and was eventually sentenced to 30 months in jail after pleading guilty in 2010.

Andrews now accuses the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University of telling Barrett her room number and allowing him to book the room next to hers. (RELATED: Why Did Erin Andrews Look SO Annoyed About The ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Engagement?)

She is suing the hotel for “infliction of emotional distress and invasion of privacy,” Page Six reports.

“He pled guilty because the FBI had a box full of evidence, not because he is remorseful,” Andrews said in court when Barrett was sentenced. (PHOTOS: Erin Andrews Still Haunted By Nude Video Leak)

“Every time I check into a hotel room, I fear he is in the closet, and every time I go home, I fear he is waiting for me. I fear for my life.”
