Erin Andrews won a $55 million judgement on Monday after the Nashville Marriott and a stalker were found liable for a nude video of the journalist that spread across the Internet.
Andrews sued the hotel for negligence after a man was given a hotel room next to hers upon request. The man, Michael Barrett, then videotaped her through her door's peephole.
Barret then posted the video online
Barrett is currently serving two years in prison after pleading guilty to interstate stalking.
Erin Andrews jury split damages between the stalker - who went to jail over this - and the hotel companies - $28 and $26m respectively.
