The jury in the lawsuit brought against the Vanderbilt Marriott by sports journalist Erin Andrews has come to a conclusion: the hotel must pay her $27.5 million, while her stalker must pay an equal amount. If they pay using a travel rewards credit card, at least they could get a few free nights in their own hotel out of it.
According to quotes obtained by WSMV, the jury was heavily swayed by emotional testimony:
“I truly believe she was telling the trust,” [juror Terry] Applegate said…
“Just the emotion that he gave, the feeling,” [juror Noble] Taylor said. “The story that he told about his daughter just made her a normal person. How she is now versus how she was then.”
