Erin Andrews Reaches A Settlement With Marriott Hotels

Filed under: Legal Matters

no title

Erin Andrews is FINALLY done with her legal drama!

According to Andrews' lawyer, the beauty reached a settlement with Marriott hotels in her peeping tom case. While Erin received $55 million dollars in her lawsuit against her perpetrator Michael David Barrett and the hotel chain in March, it was not the end of her court room drama.

Shortly after E.A. received her legal victory, her lawyer asked the judge to apply rules of joint and several liability towards her awarded money. Essentially, the move would require the hotel owner and operator to pay the full settlement opposed to it being split with Michael.

For those who don't remember, the court ordered Barrett to pay $28 million while Marriott was told to cough up $27 million bucks.

If you're wondering why the blonde would want the hotel company to pay the full amount, it's most likely due to the fact that her perp doesn't have any money for restitution. Going after a profitable hotel chain is way more productive, especially when said hotel f*cked up so badly.

As for the settlement, Erin's lawyer confided that the details of the truce will remain private.

Speaking to E! News, the reporter's legal rep revealed:

"This litigation is over. Erin Andrews is satisfied with the settlement, the terms of which are confidential."

Well, we're just glad to hear Andrews got what she wanted! It's more than deserved!

Congrats, girl!

Erin Andrews Emotionally Testifies In Court That Her Peeping Tom Scandal Could Have Been 'Stopped'

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersSad Sad

Its been a long and harrowing seven years for Erin Andrews.

On Monday, Erin took the stand against a Marriott hotel in Nashville for alleged negligence. The sportscaster is currently suing the hotel, among with other entities, for $75 million dollars over a high-profile stalking case in 2008.

For those who don't know, Andrews was horrifically violated when a man named Michael David Barrett secretly videotaped her naked through a peeping tom hole. The incident took place the Nashville Marriott and Erin wants to hold the popular hotel chain accountable.

While Barrett already served a 30 month prison sentence along with other fines, the blonde is adamant that hotel employees allowed this transgression to happen and they too should pay a price. Essentially, Michael had requested to stay in the room adjacent to E.A. and even went as far to inquire the dates she'd be staying at the location.

Speaking on the irresponsible decisions of the chain (the same incident occurred at a Radisson in Wisconsin), the reporter revealed:

"I'm so angry. This could have been stopped. No one ever called me or told me when I checked in that he asked to be put next to me. All I wanted to do is be respected, be the girl who loves sports, and now I'm the girl with the scandal. It's embarrassing. It was everywhere…My naked body was on the front page of the New York Post."

Wow. How heartbreaking.

To make matters worse, authorities told Erin the images of her nude will be on the internet until she dies. Once an image hits the web, it's extremely difficult for it to ever be removed… it's also a common problem found in child pornography cases.

Adding insult to injury, for a long time the public assumed this leak was just another publicity stunt a la Farrah Abraham or Kim Kardashian West.

The Dancing With The Stars Host admitted not being believed was one of the worst parts of the situation:

"Probably for like three months, everybody thought it was a publicity stunt. The front page of the New York Post said ‘ESPN Scandal.' To Fox News and CBS, everybody put up that I was doing it for publicity and attention, and that ripped me apart."

As for how the case has left her, the former Florida resident admitted:

"I was living like a hermit. It was nothing like who I am. It was nothing like who I tried to be."

Considering Monday's testimony was so emotional (the session also included a painful anecdote from Andrews' poppa Steven Andrews), we have no doubt the days to follow will be just as tough.

Stay strong, Erin!

Erin Andrews Stalker Has To Pay Back ESPN For His Crazy!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal Matters

ap091208113331jb.jpg

Serves this crazy right!

After the very frightening incidents involving Erin Andrews being recorded and stalked by Michael David Barrett last summer, ESPN ended up with quite a few extra bills protecting the reporter with security and aiding the government's investigation - $327, 442.27 to be exact!

And they're not too happy about it!

ESPN is now insisting that Barrett, who just began serving his jail sentence, pay back every expense that the network incurred during the ordeal.

Have fun paying that one back, douchebag!!
