Erin Andrews Suing Hotels and Peeping Tom

Erin Andrews suing hotels and "Peeping Tom" Michael David Barett.  Andrews filed a lawsuit in Cook County court for "negligence and invasion of privacy" seeking $1.2 million dollars from various hotels and Barrett for "severe and permanent emotional distress."

Andrews is the ESPN reporter who was followed by Michael David Barrett in an "interstate stalking case."  Barrett pleaded guilty to charges in December 2009 and was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in jail for interstate stalking.  Barrett pleaded guilty to following Andrews  to throughout U.S. cities and renting hotel rooms adjoining hers to secretly film her through altered peepholes in Columbus, Ohio, and Nashville, Tennessee.  Barrett then attempted to sell his footage to various media outlets and eventually posted the videos online.

Andrews filed the latest suit against Barett and the following hotels: Marriott International, Inc, West End Hotel Partners LLC and the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University, Windsor Capital Group, Inc, Ashtel Inc. and Radisson Hotel at the Milwaukee Airport, Ohio State University and the Blackwell Inn, and Preferred Hotel Group, Inc. and Summit Hotels and Resorts.
