The first day of the civil trial for Fox Sports reporter Erin Andrews’ negligence lawsuit against a Nashville Marriott hotel and others wrapped Monday with jury selection.

The proceedings will resume at 9 a.m. Tuesday with opening statements from attorneys.

A reporter and television personality, Andrews is seeking $75 million in damages, accusing the hotel and others of allowing Michael David Barrett to book rooms next to her and to rig peepholes through which he filmed videos of her changing clothes.

Court documents say Barrett then posted the videos on the Internet.

In her lawsuit, Andrews said the incident happened in 2008 at the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University, while she was visiting the city to cover one of the university’s football games.

The Tennessean reports Andrews is suing Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University, Windsor Capital Group and Barrett. Her lawsuit accuses the Marriott of negligence, infliction of emotional distress and invasion of privacy.
