Hotel Settles up in Peephole Case

Sportscaster Erin Andrews has reached a settlement with the owner and operator of the Nashville hotel where a nude video of her was recorded through the hotel room peephole.  

Terms of the agreement are confidential and the matter is now over, according Andrews’ lawyer. The deal was reached just before the two sides headed back to court.  

A jury in March found the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University liable for the video and awarded Andrews $55 million in damages to be paid by the hotel and the man who shot the video.

The jury found that the hotel is liable for 49% of the $55 million in damages, or $26.95 million, while Michael Barrett, who sot the video is liable for 51% of the damages, equivalent to $28.05 million

It is likely that the hotel paid fair less than the amount awarded, but the real figure will never be released. 

As for the $28 million from Barrett, good luck with that.
