NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A jury has awarded $55 million to Erin Andrews in the lawsuit over nude video taken at a Nashville hotel, and posted online.

Jurors started their deliberations Monday after two weeks of emotional testimony. They heard directly from the Fox Sports reporter and co-host of the TV show "Dancing with the Stars," who tearfully testified that she was humiliated, shamed and suffers from depression as a result of the video, which has been viewed by millions of people online.

Andrews' parents described for jurors the terror they and their daughter felt after learning of the video but not knowing who took it, where it was shot and if someone was still watching their daughter.

An FBI investigation would later reveal that Michael David Barrett shot videos in hotels in Nashville and Columbus, Ohio, and posted them online. The trial focuses on the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt and video.

This story will be updated.
