A hotel security expert testified Wednesday in the $75 million Erin Andrews’ stalker trial and said that her stalker was the only one at fault for secretly recording nude videos of the sports broadcaster. He claimed that the hotel should not be held accountable, according to the Tennessean.
The trial was briefly delayed after details came to light that Neal Peskind, a representative of the corporation that owns the Nashville hotel, watched the naked video of Andrews after he testified in the civil trial on Monday. Peskind contends that friends who he was having dinner with started to view the video and he told them to stop.
The case stems from a 2008 incident which occurred at the Marriott at Vanderbilt University, in which a man secretly videotaped Andrews changing in her hotel room. He then proceeded to post the naked video on the internet. In addition to the suspect, Andrews made a $75 million claim against the hotel, saying that they negligently gave Barrett her room number and let him stay in the room next door.
