Vanessa Bryant won the lawsuit against the County of Los Angeles for the unlawful dissemination of the photos of the body of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gigi.
Rescuers who rushed to the scene after the tragic helicopter crash on January 26, 2020 took photos of the victims’ bodies. Then the deputy sheriff and firefighters sent them to outsiders without regard.
Vanessa Bryant, to prevent further outrage at the body of her husband and daughter, sued Los Angeles County. The same action was taken by Chris Chester, who lost his wife and daughter in the accident. The jury, after nearly five hours of consultations, agreed with Vanessa and Chester, who must be compensated respectively for 16 and 15 million dollars.
After the sentence was read, the woman wrote on Instagram: “All for you! Love you! JUSTICE for Kobe and Gigi!” posting a selfie with her husband and little daughter.
In this way, Vanessa, in addition to the financial compensation, made sure above all that the spread of those images would be stopped forever.
