A jury awarded Vanessa Bryant $16 million over leaked photographs of the January 2020 crash that killed her husband, NBA Hall Of Famer & Legend, Kobe Bryant. According to a report from NBC News, the photographs were reportedly taken by first responders and shared with the public. The shared photos were pictures of the remains of Kobe and their 13-year old daughter, Gianna at the crash site. Vanessa Bryant’s lawsuit claimed the photos invaded her privacy and caused emotional distress.

The nine jurors deliberated for 4.5 hours before reaching their verdict. They agreed with Bryant, who silently wept as the verdict was read. Vanessa Bryant and co-defendant, Chris Chester (who lost his wife and daughter in the crash), sued Los Angeles County over the photos, which reportedly included graphic photos of the bodies after the crash.
