A legal analyst told WSMV that the $55 million in damages awarded earlier this week to TV personality Erin Andrews is “unusually high.” From 2014 to 2015, the average monetary award for cases in Tennessee was $404,323. A juror described the trial's nine-days as an “emotional rollercoaster,” and said to The Tennessean that the seven-hour deliberation was “intense” and “heated.” Andrews sought $75 million after secretly being filmed nude in a Nashville hotel.
