Jury Paid Pennies For Time As They Decide Should They Make Erin Andrews Wealthy
When employed by ESPN, Erin Andrews was indeed violated when a creep took pictures of her when she was undressing at the Marriott Hotel back in 2008.
The gist of the suit is that Andrews claims her privacy was violated by the Nashville Marriott when its employees gave her stalker the dates she would be at the hotel as well as a room next to her.
However, Andrews suing the Marriott for $75 million is a bit excessive and one has to feel sorry for the jury which is paid pennies for their time as they are about to decide should they make Andrews a very wealthy woman due to her alleged duress.
Let's face it, there are many lawsuits which are indeed justifiable when awards are being made---particularly if a person is seriously injured through no fault of their own.
However in the case of Andrews, hopefully between all her tears, the men and women on the jury can see-through Andrews and her lawyer(s), as this trial as being nothing more than a get quick rich scheme.
