IT WASNT ME…..
If you recall, on January 26, 2020, the All-Star NBA player, his daughter, Gianna, and 7 others lost their life in an unfortunately helicopter accident. The weather has been largely looked to as the reason for the crash, as the fog in the Los Angeles area did not provide for safe conditions to fly. The pilot who was driving also perished in the tragic accident and Mrs. Bryant has since filed suit for the alleged wrongful death.
Attorneys for the brother of the pilot who was flying the helicopter that lead to the untimely death of Kobe and Gianna Bryant and their friends have now responded to Vanessa Bryant’s lawsuit against them. In his response, Berge Zobayan alleges that “any injuries or damages to plaintiffs and/or their decedent was directly caused in full or in part by the negligence or fault of plaintiffs and/or their decedent,” according to the 7-page document.
It is unclear at this time what the “negligence” of the passengers is referring to, but Mrs. Bryant could stand to ask for damages that are possible in the millions if they are not successful. At this time she is also seeking damages for the “loss of love, affection, care, society, service, comfort, support, right to support, companionship, moral support and expectations of future support and counseling.”
Do you think opposing counsel stands a chance at defeating Bryant’s suit?
