Erin Andrews, the Fox Sports sideline reporter, is seeking $75 million in damages in a lawsuit after a man secretly videotaped her naked in a Tennessee hotel room in 2008.

The court documents were obtained by the Smoking Gun:

"In December 2011, Andrews, 37, filed a lawsuit alleging that Marriott International and several other defendants were guilty of negligence and invasion of privacy in connection with stalker Michael David Barrett’s filming of her at the Nashville Marriott in September 2008. Andrews alleges that Marriott workers helped facilitate Barrett’s videotaping by first revealing that she was a guest at the Nashville hotel, then disclosing her room number, and finally by agreeing to Barrett’s request to be placed in the room next door to the broadcaster. Andrews, then working for ESPN, was in town to cover a Vanderbilt University football game."

Barrett was sentenced to 30 months in prison after pleading guilty to felony stalking. [via The Smoking Gun]
