In his closing argument, Andrews' attorney encouraged the jury to award her damages that took into account the "full amount of harm that's been done to her. During her testimony, Andrews said she has suffered because of the video for the last seven years. She was forced to seek help in dealing with the trauma and now has an elaborate strategy for checking out hotels she stays in. Her parents told the court that she was a "shell" of her former self.
