A jury will start deliberating Monday on whether to force the Nashville Marriott, its operators, and a convicted stalker to pay Fox reporter Erin Andrews in her $175 million lawsuit. Jurors heard seven days of testimony, and lawyers delivered their close arguments on Friday.
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. Michael Barrett was later convicted and served 2 1/2 years for stalking. In addition to the suspect, Andrews made a claim against the hotel, saying that they negligently gave Barrett her room number and let him stay in the room next door.
