Los Angeles County condemned its employees who passed around photos from the scene of the helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant, and now it’s saying that the lawsuit filed by Kobe’s widow Vanessa Bryant is not viable.

Vanessa Bryant filed a lawsuit last year against LA county, accusing four Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies of sharing photos of Bryant and the eight others who were killed in January 2020. The county, in an official court filing obtained by USA Today, condemned the actions of its personnel who shared photos.

“The County does not condone this showing of accident site photographs and has taken corrective personnel actions accordingly,” the filing said, via USA today. “This does not mean, however, that Plaintiff has viable legal claims.”

The county offered “its deepest sympathies and condolences” to Bryant and her family in the filing, but said that the “case is not about that tragedy. It is about accident site photographs.”

They’re also contesting the photos weren’t circulated publicly.

“They were not publicly disseminated,” the county said, via USA Today. “Plaintiff brought this lawsuit because she is concerned that photographs may be publicly disseminated. There is no legal basis for suing Defendants for hypothetical harm.”

According to USA Today, Bryant and her attorney plan to conduct “more than forty depositions, forensic examinations of electronic devices and cloud-based storage accounts in the possession of Defendants and third parties, and expert reports and depositions.”

This is probably going to get pretty ugly.
