ESPN’s Erin Andrews files $10 million suit

Remember the hotel nightmare of ESPN reporter Erin Andrews, who three years ago was spied upon and secretly filmed nude by a since-convicted man from outside her guest rooms?

Well, Reuters this evening is reporting that Andrews has filed a new lawsuit seeking payback – $10 million, to be exact – citing invasion of privacy. The Tennessean first reported the story early Tuesday.

The suit is filed against both the Marriott hotel in Nashville where she was filmed and the convicted man, Michael Barrett of Chicago, Reuters says.

The story sparked fears among women and some men about being spied upon through their hotel-door peephole.

Barrett previously pleaded guilty and in 2010 was sentenced to two and a half years in federal prison.

Marriott did not comment on the suit, citing a policy of not commenting on pending litigation. The story notes that the suit was originally filed last year but was filed again to make sure that the statute of limitations did not run out, Reuters says.

“I’m being victimized every day…and I did nothing to deserve it,” Andrews said, according to Reuters. See the story for more information about the suit.

Readers: Do you ever think about the peephole in your hotel room’s door anymore, and whether or not it’s secure?
