Erin Andrews Awarded $55 Million
Sportscaster and "Dancing with the Stars" host Erin Andrews is the winner of a 55-million-dollar award in her lawsuit over a nude peephole video.
She was secretly recorded changing clothes at the Nashville Marriott hotel in 2008. The video went viral online.
Andrews sued the hotel's management and owners, claiming that the stalker who shot the video couldn't have done it if it wasn't for the staff's negligence.
During the court hearing, Andrews said the incident made her depressed and sleepless.
The hotel's defense team says they're disappointed in the award amount, and pointed out that the hotel's assistance to the FBI helped convict Andrews' stalker.
