Andrews' lawyers argued during a week-long trial that the hotel should have kept Barrett from finding out where she was staying, and from booking a room next to hers, while she was in town to cover a September 2008 college football game for ESPN. According to the Associated Press, several jurors hugged Andrews after the Monday verdict was announced and one appeared to be seeking her autograph.
The hotel claimed that the blame fell exclusively on Barrett.
Thanking the court and the jury, Andrews, who also co-hosts "Dancing with the Stars", tweeted: "The support I've received from the people of Nashville has been overwhelming".
I feel really guilty he didn't know me before this happened and to try to explain to someone who has questions about why I have trust issues, why I'm insecure, why I'm embarrassed; he doesn't understand.
A jury found the management and owners of a Nashville hotel liable in a lawsuit over nude video of sportscaster Erin Andrews, and awarded her $55 million.
The man who recorded her, Michael Barrett, admitted stalking Andrews and was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison.
The jury has awarded Erin Andrews $55 million in her civil lawsuit over the secret recording and release of a video showing her naked during a hotel stay. The jury went into deliberations this morning after roughly a week-long trial involving the celeb, and now, Andrews has released a statement via social media.
She maintained that the stalker and two hotel companies were to blame for the video. It was only up to jurors to decide if the hotel owner, West End Hotel Partners, and former operator, Windsor Capital Group, should share in the blame.
The suit alleged that Barrett was able to film Andrews while she was nude by manipulating the peephole on her hotel room door.
During closing arguments, one of Andrews' lawyers said Barrett tried to shoulder responsibility because he holds a grudge against her over his conviction and didn't want her to win any money.
She said she thoroughly checks the bed, the clock, the air conditioning grate and especially the bathroom for hidden cameras and looks for the telltale red lights of possible hidden recorders.
The former insurance executive never showed up for trial. The only reason he picked Andrews, he said, was because she was popular and he saw she was trending on Yahoo.
