Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “Kobe Bryant’s wife Vanessa wins ruling, LA County officials to testify about crash pictures”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A federal judge granted Vanessa Bryant’s request to force the Los Angeles County sheriff and fire chief to answer questions about the pictures first responders snapped at the site of the 2020 crash that killed her husband Kobe, daughter Gianna, and seven others.

Bryant’s Tuesday legal win came several weeks after the widow of the NBA legend was deposed in connection with her emotional distress lawsuit.

The 39-year-old recounted the day of the deadly crash and her reaction to learn that emergency workers had snapped photos of the grisly scene, and in at least one case showed off the twisted souvenirs around town, according to a 50-page transcript of the deposition.

US Magistrate Judge Charles Eick ruled Sheriff Alex Villanueva and County Fire Chief Daryl Osby would be compelled to give pre-trial testimony about the photos in regards to the civil lawsuit filed by Bryant and other victims, who claim the pictures caused emotional distress, according to court documents viewed by The Post.

Eick ruled the men have “unique firsthand, non-repetitive knowledge relevant to the issues in this case” that is “not entirely obtainable” through other sources.
