Sportscaster Erin Andrews has won the battle against her stalker in court.
A jury awarded her 55 million USD in her lawsuit against a stalker who bought a hotel room next to her and secretly recorded a video of her that showed her in the nude.
The members of the jury found that the hotel companies and the stalker shared in the blame.
After deliberating for a day, it was determined that the stalker was responsible for 51% of the blame and the two hotel companies would share the rest,
Andrews was emotional after the judgement went in her favour as she hugged her attorneys and family, who have supported her inside the courtroom throughout the emotional trial.
A FBI investigation later revealed that the stalker named Michael David Barrett shot videos in hotels in Nashville and Columbus, Ohio, and posted them online.
Barrett is an insurance executive and shot nearly five minutes of video of her while she was nude inside her room back in 2008. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to two and a half years in prison.
Andrews said that she suffered from depression after the video was leaked and her parents felt as if their daughter was being watched all the time.
