NASHVILLE, TN (AP) – Opening statements are expected to begin Tuesday in the trial involving sportscaster and TV host Erin Andrews, who filed a $75 million lawsuit against the franchise owner and manager of a luxury hotel and a man who admitted to making secret nude recordings of her.
Former insurance executive Michael David Barrett pleaded guilty in federal court in 2009 to renting hotel rooms next to Andrews in three cities and altering the peepholes and shooting secret nude videos of her in Columbus, Ohio, and Nashville.
Andrews was staying at the Marriott at Vanderbilt University in 2008 while covering a football game for ESPN. She alleges that someone affiliated with the Nashville hotel told Barrett where Andrews was staying and allowed him to stay in the room next to hers.
