ESPN sideline princess Erin Andrews has filed a new lawsuit in Tennessee against the Nashville Marriott hotel where she was videotaped naked in 2008, accusing them of invasion of privacy, negligence and infliction of emotional stress.

Michael Barrett, the Illinois insurance executive who was sentenced to two and a half years for taping her, is also named in the suit. Andrews is seeking $7 million in damages — $3 million from Marriott and $4 million from Barrett.

We weren’t really sure how a hotel could be guilty of a the charges they’re accused of, but someone working there allegedly told Barrett which room Andrews was staying in, so he could rent the room next to her.

Andrews initially filed the lawsuit last year, but it was withdrawn for technical reasons. She has also re-filed separate lawsuits against the other two places Barrett taped her. Those hotels are Columbus and Milwaukee.

We wonder if those millions of dollars will make her feel better.

“Liability breeds responsibility,” Andrews’ attorney Mary Parker said. “The only way you can get a corporation to act responsibly is to hold it liable when it does wrong.”

Barrett agreed to pay full restitution to Andrews as part of a plea deal he agreed to almost two years ago. You have to wonder if Andrews has any shot of getting $4 million from a guy who’s been sitting in prison, though.
