The jury in Erin Andrews' lawsuit against Marriott has just been settled for $55 million dollars. This is short of the $75-$80 million that she and her legal team were asking for.
However, there is no doubt that this is clearly a yuge pile of cash. Erin Andrews, who according to celebritynetworth.com, had a net worth of $3 million dollars, will clearly be moving up in the world. The $55 million has been awarded as damages for emotional distress and anxiety since the peephole video of her was posted in 2009.
She cites that it has negatively impacted her career and has also negatively impacted her future earnings potential. So with this lump sum payment she pretty much does not need to work another day for the rest of her life.
Not a bad outcome to say the least.
It will be interesting to see if she continues her career with Fox Sports, but I would wager that she retires at the tender age of 37 and stays out of the spotlight for the rest of her life. I also bet that she moves to an island somewhere off the grid, I would personally recommend that she checkout Maui, Hawaii or Bora Bora in Tahiti.
