(Newser) – Erin Andrews has settled her lawsuit against the owner and operator of the hotel where she was recorded through a door peephole in 2008. The former ESPN reporter was awarded $55 million in her lawsuit against those business entities as well as Michael David Barrett, the stalker who filmed her. But since Barrett would likely have been unable to pay much, if any, of the $28 million he was ordered to, Andrews' lawyers argued that the owner and operator of the Nashville Marriott should have to pay the full $55 million. The settlement agreement was reached Monday morning, hours before lawyers were expected in the courtroom to discuss that argument. The settlement is confidential, but one of Andrews' lawyers says she is "satisfied."
