Palmer will testify for the defense, a Nashville circuit court spokesperson confirms to PEOPLE. Palmer was initially scheduled to testify in the morning, but due to “equipment issues” the video deposition will be held in the afternoon, the spokesperson says.

Andrews is suing Michael Barrett, Marriott International and others for $75 million after Barrett took a nude video of her in 2008 while at the hotel chain.
Earlier this week, Andrews told a Nashville judge that the footage, which Barrett distributed online, still haunts her.
“I think about it every day,” she said. “One of the worst thoughts I have is when I walk around a stadium there’s always that thought, as I walk right by the stands, and I think, ‘My God, everyone in this stadium has seen that video.’ “
