Fox Sports broadcaster and "Dancing with the Stars" co-host Erin Andrews is seeking $75 million in a new lawsuit related to a 2008 peephole incident, according to court records obtained by The Smoking Gun

Andrews was the victim of an invasion of privacy at a Marriott hotel in Nashville, Tennessee when her stalker, Michael Barrett, was put into the hotel room next to her. Barrett recorded Andrews in the nude by filming her with a cell phone through her hotel peephole and later posted the video on the Internet. 

Andrews sued Marriott International (along with multiple other hotel chains) and Barrett for invasion of privacy, negligence and infliction of emotional stress. Andrews alleged that Marriott employees aided Barrett by admitting that she was a guest, giving out her hotel room number and booking him in the room next to her.  

"You violated me and you violated all women," said Andrews, speaking to Barrett at a trial in 2010. "You are a sexual predator, a sexual deviant and they should lock you up."

Barrett was later sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison after admitting to stalking Andrews at three different hotel locations and filming her nude on two separate occasions.  

In the new suit filed Oct. 13, Andrews is seeking $75 million from Marriott, West End, Windsor and Barrett as she suffers from "severe and permanent emotional distress" and "embarrassment," among other things.
