NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A jury could soon begin deliberating on whether two hotel companies and a convicted stalker should be forced to pay sportscaster Erin Andrews millions of dollars.
Closing arguments are set to begin in Andrews’ civil case on Friday. The sportscaster and co-host of the TV show “Dancing with the Stars” filed a $75 million lawsuit against the stalker and the two companies that owned and operated the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt when secretly recorded videos were taken of Andrews in September 2008.
Michael David Barrett was sentenced to serve 2 ½ years in prison after admitting to stalking Andrews in three cities. He altered the peepholes on hotel room doors in Nashville and Columbus, Ohio, recorded nude videos of her and then posted them on the Internet.
