Erin Andrews Suit: Hotels Were Peeper Friendly

7/15/2010 5:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Erin Andrews just sued a string of hotels for allegedly giving her stalker easy access to secretly record the ESPN reporter.

In the civil lawsuit, filed in State Court in Chicago, Andrews claims the hotels -- which include Marriott and Radisson -- gave Michael David Barrett her room number and allowed him to check into adjacent rooms. Barrett recorded Andrews through modified peepholes in her hotel room doors.

Attorney Marshall Grossman -- who repped Erin during Barrett's stalking trial -- tells TMZ, "Erin filed the lawsuit to send a message to hotel chains that they need to exercise greater care in protecting their guests. She was seriously harmed by what happened there."

In the suit, Andrews claims negligence, infliction of emotional distress, and invasion of privacy.

She's such an attention whore. Why doesn't she sue ESPN for not providing security and a secure hotel room? Oh yeah, right...they are the dumbasses keeping her on the payroll. ESPN is so dumb. They could have easily replaced her and the new bimbo would cost a lot less in money and in hassle.

I confused as to why any of these reputable hotels would ever give out that kind of information about another guest. And then accommodating another guest by granting him a room next door? ...Seems VERY hard to swallow her allegation. Not buyin' it.

Next she's suing Black & Decker for providing peepers easy access to drills so they can drill through the walls. Also named in the suit are Home Depot, Lowes, and Osh for not running background checks before selling these said drills.

This was probably the best thing that ever happened to her. After this all happened, she was famous overnight. Now she's going to beat the hell out of it until FINALLY those 15 minutes are up. Then for her to whine about how she was peeped and yet she dresses like a $2 hooker...come on!

Seriously harmed? Really? This bitch has become a name now instead of the stupid blond on ESPN. She should give that guy some credit considering her agent couldn't even make her popular.

What happened to her is terrible. She didn't 'ask for it' or 'encourage' him in any way. She is the victim here.

So what is she saying?...That every potential neighbor in her hotels must be vetted before they give them a room?...IT'S NOT THEIR JOB TO PROVIDE YOUR SECURITY...
Get over yourself Andrews...You're simply NOT all that...

There's a difference between expecting your hotel neighbors to be vetted for you, and actually handing over information to someone asking for it, and then giving them the room next door.

Probably he paid them some of the money, is why they did it.

Unfortunately, things like this really do happen; employees hand over information that should be private either to friends or to people who pay them. Some won't, but many will.

Have someone ask her sometime, off the cuff so she doesn't expect it, would she prefer this had never happened and she never got famous? I bet she would start to get upset and say YES she would prefer the way things were before.

Why do people hate her? I don't know sports; is she lousy at what she does? Do people feel like guys who stalk girls and drill holes to watch them would never do something dangerous, or that she's a complainer trying to get somewhere while doing nothing to earn it?

I certainly think that there are people who would say or do anything to get talked about regardless of truth (Tila Tequila comes to mind); I just don't see it in this case. But a lot of people sure seem to hate her.

Go get 'em, Erin! The hotel shouldn't be giving out her room location unless she authorizes it.

Shut up, you idiot haters!
