Last month the Erin Andrews case caused quite a stir with Hotels and Hoteliers. Andrews was awarded $55 million in her civil lawsuit over the secret recording and release of a video showing her naked during a hotel stay in Nashville, TN. The sportscaster’s original suit asked for $75 million from the owner and operator of the hotel where she was staying, and the stalker who tampered with her room’s peephole to record the video. The jury put the fault 51% on the stalker and 49% on the West End Hotel Partners, which owns and operates that Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University. The hotel group was asked to pay out more than $26 million. How can you protect your guests and yourself from situations like this?
