(Reuters) - Closing arguments began on Friday in sportscaster Erin Andrews' civil trial seeking $75 million in damages from a Nashville hotel over a 2008 nude video of her taken by a stalker in an adjoining room at the hotel.

Andrews testified for two days at the two-week trial, saying she has experienced depression and spells of crying and sleeplessness since the video went viral in 2009. The incident could have been prevented by the hotel, her lawsuit argues.
