Erin Andrews‘ peeping tom lawsuit may not be over just yet.

Attorneys for the Dancing With the Stars co-host have filed papers claiming that the Nashville hotel owner and its operator should pay the total $55 million judgment that a jury awarded the sportscaster earlier this month.

According to court documents obtained by The Tennessean, Erin’s attorneys argue that the hotel defendants are jointly and severally liable for all of the plaintiff’s damages. In addition, the final judgment “should reflect that each defendant is jointly and severely liable for the entire verdict.”

“This court should issue a judgment against each defendant for $55 million, or at the very least, invite briefing from all parties on the matter before entering a final judgment,” the court filing stated.

E! News has reached out to both parties for additional comment.

Back in 2008, a video of Erin was posted online where she appeared nude while changing clothes in a hotel room. Michael David Barrett pleaded guilty one year later to stalking the sportscaster and shooting the video through a peephole in an adjacent room.

While Michael was sentenced to 30 months in prison, Erin decided to sue the hotel for $75 million.

More than two weeks ago, a jury reached a verdict in the highly publicized case. The court ruled that Michael was 51 percent at fault and required him to pay out more than $28 million to Erin. West End Hotel Partners, which owns and operates the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University, was found to be 49 percent at fault and asked to pay out more than $26 million.

At the time, the hotel’s attorney spoke out saying they were discussing future options with how they should proceed after the verdict.

“Our clients were manipulated by a criminal who had honed his skill at several prior hotels before coming to Nashville to commit his intentional act against Ms. Andrews,” the statement read. “It is very difficult to overcome the perception that Michael Barrett’s acts, acts he also committed at other hotels and against other women, should be the responsibility of our clients. We are discussing with our clients their options at this point in light of the ruling.”
