Erin Andrews sues hotels over peephole stalker Michael David Barrett
UPI News Service, 07/16/2010
TV personality Erin Andrews has filed a lawsuit in Chicago's Cook County Circuit Court against Marriott International and Radisson Hotels, court records show.
The ESPN reporter and former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant alleges the hotel chains confirmed her whereabouts, including her room number, to Michael David Barrett, a stalker, then gave him rooms next door to hers on more than one occasion, the Chicago Tribune reported.
Barrett is the Illinois man who pleaded guilty in 2009 to secretly videotaping Andrews in multiple hotel rooms while she was undressed.
Andrews is suing the hotels and Barrett for unspecified damages for negligence and invasion of privacy, the Tribune said.
