SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A trial team with the Santa Monica law firm, Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP won the prestigious 2016 "Consumer Attorney of the Year" award on Saturday at the annual gala of the Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC) in San Francisco. Each year the statewide organization honors one outstanding trial result that was highly significant for consumers. Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP represented FOX Sports reporter and TV personality Erin Andrews in her case against a Nashville hotel for its misconduct, which led to a stalker secretly shooting video of Andrews in her hotel room in the nude. Attorneys Bruce Broillet, Scott Carr, Tobin Lanzetta, Molly McKibben and Nashville co-counsel Randy Kinnard obtained a $55 million jury verdict in the personal injury lawsuit involving consumer privacy protections at hotels. The high profile trial helped shed light on the issue of online trafficking of non-consensual pornography as well as the need for hotels to protect the safety, security and privacy of their guests. Andrews was staying at the Marriott at Vanderbilt University in 2008 while on assignment at the time as an ESPN sportscaster. At trial, Andrews' attorneys revealed that the Marriott hotel staff told the perpetrator, Michael Barrett, that Ms. Andrews was staying at the hotel and granted his request to stay in an adjacent room. Testimony revealed that the hotel staff gave Barrett a reservation in the room next to Andrews because Barrett was a Marriott Rewards customer, and hotel employees admitted at trial they did it because they wanted to keep the customer happy and coming back. Andrews testified that, had the hotel told her what was going on, she would have called the police and left the hotel.
