Jury Awards Erin Andrews $55 Million

By Mark Joyella 

A jury has awarded Erin Andrews $55 million in her civil lawsuit involving the secret recording of a video that showed her undressed while staying in a hotel room.

ABC reports jurors took photos with Andrews after the jury award was announced, and she signed autographs.

Andrews’ original lawsuit, against the owner and operator of the Nashville hotel where she had been staying when the video was recorded, asked for $75 million. The jury found a stalker, Michael David Barrett, 51 percent at fault for making the video, and West End Hotel Partners, 49 percent at fault.

Barrett’s personal liability is $28 million, while West End’s payout would be more than $26 million.
