USA Today reports that ESPN sideline reporter Erin Andrews, the victim in a 2009 Peeping Tom case, is now suing the hotel chains that she stayed at in which her stalker shot peephole videos of her naked.
Andrews released a statement through her law firm, in which she is quoted about the suit filed in Chicago on Thursday, saying: "...I do hope that my experience will cause the hospitality industry to be more vigilant in protecting its guests..."
Andrews is filing suit against several hotels including Marriott International and Raddison Hotels, for providing information about her room location to Michael David Barrett. It was Barrett who pled guilty to a felony stalking charge after shooting nude footage of Andrews in her hotel room and disseminating it on the internet. Barrett, serving 2 1/2 years in prison, was also named as a plaintiff in the suit.
Andrews recently placed third on the 10th season of ABC's Dancing with the Stars and was just promoted at ESPN adding segment hosting duties on the network's popular College GameDay program, which returns this fall. She signed a 3-year deal to stay at ESPN on Monday, and according to USA Today she will also contribute reports on ABC's Good Morning America.
