    Erin Andrews' $55M award makes a mockery of pain and suffering
    No disrespect to the jury in the Erin Andrews case, but I can't breathe.

    The Fox Sports reporter just got a $55 million award for the pain and suffering of being videotaped naked in a Nashville hotel room in 2008.

    ERIN ANDREWS TELLS JURY SHE VOMITED BEFORE SEEING NUDE VIDEO

    Fifty five million dollars because people got to see Erin Andrews naked on the Internet.

    But Erin Andrews is still alive and, as the defendants in the case argued, is certainly thriving. She's free to go on "Dancing with the Stars" or schmooze with NFL players. But a jury felt her pain — and treated the symptoms with cash. America, what a country

    Well, if you makes you feel any better, half of that money is supposed to come from the douchebag that took the video, so you can subtract that right off the top. Of the $26M or thereabouts remaining, the lawyers will get their 30% cut. Now we're at around $18M. Figure the feds and her state will skim another 50% to 60% of that. If she's lucky, she might actually see somewhere in the neighborhood of $8M in the end - assuming, of course, that the Marriot doesn't appeal the verdict and drag out the proceedings even further.

    No. But then again, the news media has always been infatuated with covering the stories of distressed pretty white ladies.

    Had the creep gotten shitty video of Pam Oliver, it would still be relegated to some 4chan thread nobody's ever seen.

    They set an example with that 55 million ruling. Hotels noticed this ruling for sure. Plus, she is only getting about 5-6 million when all is said and done. See Ron Goldman case.


    The hotel was responsible because their employees or employee gave out her room number and put the guy close to her room. You mess up like that as a huge hotel chain and your employees screw over someone....you pay. 5 million seems fair. The hotel screwed her over.
