NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Closing arguments were heard Monday in the ongoing civil lawsuit trial surrounding Erin Andrews’ Peeping Tom case.
The jury will begin deliberating Monday on whether the Nashville Marriott, its operations group and Andrews’ convicted stalker should be forced to pay the sportscaster millions of dollars.

Andrews, also a co-host of ABC’s hit show “Dancing with the Stars,” filed the $75 million lawsuit against Michael Barrett and the hotel after Barrett secretly recorded videos her naked in her hotel room in September 2008.
Barrett was sentenced to serve 2 1/2 years in prison after admitting to stalking Andrews in three cities.
During her trial, Barrett said in a recorded deposition that he altered the peepholes on hotel room doors in Nashville and Columbus, Ohio, and recorded nude videos of Andrews before posting them on the Internet.
They then went viral and have been seen by over 16 million people, an estimate an IT expert said is conservative.
