ESPN allows NY Post writers back on the air

BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) -- ESPN has reconsidered its decision to ban New York Post writers from its airwaves after the newspaper printed images from a videotape showing ESPN reporter Erin Andrews nude in a hotel room.

The network issued the ban last week.

The Post was one of several newspapers and TV networks that published or aired images from the video, which Andrews' attorney says was shot without her knowledge. Andrews plans to seek criminal charges and file civil lawsuits against the person who shot the video and anyone who publishes the material, attorney Marshall Grossman said.

On Friday, ESPN spokesman Chris LaPlaca said the network believes the writers had nothing to do with how Andrews was treated and nothing would be gained by keeping them off the air.
