Vanessa Bryant recently shared some news regarding some unfortunate circumstances surrounding the tragedy her and her family had already been facing last year and the days and months to follow.
“Thank you Judge John F. Walter, Luis Li , Brad Brian and @latimes,” Vanessa Bryant said in an Instagram post. “
Bryant also shared in the post what Li said: “‘Transparency promotes accountability. We look forward to presenting Mrs. Bryant’s case in open court’- Luis Li.”
Vanessa Bryant posted screenshots of an LA Times’ Richard Winton article titled: “In win for Vanessa Bryant, judge rules deputies who shared Kobe crash photos can be named”.
According to that article, Winton reports that: “Vanessa Bryant can obtain the names of four Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies who her lawyers allege in a lawsuit shared ‘unauthorized’ photos of the site of the helicopter crash that killed her husband, Kobe Bryant, their daughter and seven others, a federal judge ruled Monday. U.S. District Judge John F. Walter rejected an effort by Los Angeles County lawyers to keep the deputies’ names under seal in the lawsuit. They argued that releasing the names would make the deputies’ addresses and other personal information only a click away on the internet and that hackers could target them.”
Winton also states that: “The ruling means Vanessa Bryant’s lawyers can add the deputies’ names and details from the internal affairs investigation about their conduct to an amended complaint in her civil rights lawsuit against the county and the Sheriff’s Department led by Alex Villanueva.”
