NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A jury in a lawsuit involving Erin Andrews was seated late Monday afternoon.
The jury, made up of seven women and five men, was selected from a pool of 50 to 60 people.
Andrews filed a lawsuit over a 2008 incident where Michael Barrett tampered with the peephole in the sports broadcaster’s Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt hotel room so he could record nude images of her.
Barrett was found guilty in the criminal case stemming from the incident and sentenced to two and a half years in federal prison.
Marriott International, Inc. released a statement saying they were dismissed from the case. The locally-run hotel is still included in the suit, along with Barrett.
An October amendment showed Andrews asked for $75 million in damages.
Andrews arrived at court Monday morning and was in the courtroom for the selection.
Jurors are not sequestered and will be allowed to go home each night.
Court resumes at 9 a.m. Tuesday.
The trial is expected to last about 10 days.
