Many in the NBA were shocked by Kobe Bryant's death, as his daughter Gianna and seven others died alongside him in a tragic helicopter crash. However, some people took advantage of the situation and violated the privacy of those who died, and now they are responding for that in court.
Vanessa Bryant is currently suing Los Angeles authorities for their role in the transmission of pictures from the accident site. One sheriffs commissioner even sent the photos to a lady at a pub in order to impress her.
According to ESPN, Bryant is attempting to sue her for millions of dollars. The trial begins today, and she is sticking to her guns. In a similar lawsuit, the families of the other victims received up to $2.5 million. This sets a clear precedent for Bryant, who has been outspoken about the county's mismanagement.
Sheriffs deputies, firefighters, and members of the public have poked fun at gratuitous images of her deceased husband and child. She lives in fear that she or her children will one day confront horrifying images of their loved ones online.
