ESPN reporter Erin Andrews has filed a $10 million lawsuit in connection with a videotape shot through a peephole that showed her nude in her Nashville hotel room.
Andrews is seeking $6 million from the West End Marriott Hotel and $4 million from Michael Barrett, the man who shot the 2008 video, the Tennessean newspaper of Nashville reported. In the lawsuit, Andrews charges that Barrett phoned the hotel and was told which room Andrews was staying in. He then rented the room next to hers, altered the peephole on the door to her room and videotaped her. He subsequently posted the video on the Internet.
Barrett was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in federal prison. The lawsuit says the incident "has caused and continues to cause her great emotional distress and embarrassment."
A Marriott spokesman told the Tennessean that the company has changed its policies to upgrade guest privacy in the wake of the incident.
