    Erin Andrews Awarded $55 million

    (wasn't sure where to put this - not really gossip)

    The jury has awarded Erin Andrews $55M in her lawsuit against Marriott.

    I just saw this and was going to post. Good for the jury for recognizing how things can go so wrong and damage a person.

    I'm glad she won. That amount seems excessive to me, but maybe it's good to make it extra painful for hotels to not protect their guests.

    Erin won't actually get that amount. First, they said they will appeal. Then, the hotel is responsible for only 49%, stalker 51% and he ain't got it. Then her atty gets 1/3. So, on down the line she might get about $18M. I think jury calculated all that.

    It's a shame that, according to expert testimony, the video can't be removed from the internet and who knows how many copies are out there.

    That is really sad. When something like that happens, it's pretty much there forever.

    Once it's out there, anyone can save it to their computer and/or share it along. We live in different times than when I was a wild and foolish young thing - thank God!
    Count your blessings!

    I think the Marriott should have had to pay a larger percentage. Where is stalker Michael Barrett going to get millions? Not gonna happen (although they can keep an eye on any assets, earnings, etc.) According to this article he's living in his dad's basement.:

    The jury report I heard on the news said they allotted responsibility at stalker 51% and hotel 49%. They did that so that when the 55M was split, there would still be a large amount charged against the deep pocket.

    Even without an appeal, she may end up with a lot less. Which should be okay as she had her day in court and her pain has been vindicated.
