Vanessa Bryant, widow of Kobe Bryant, was recently awarded $16 million in a jury verdict against L.A. County for law and fire personnel sharing photos of the 2020 helicopter crash that killed her husband, daughter and seven others in Calabasas. Claiming privacy violation and emotional distress, the court case was ruled in her and her co-plaintiff Chris Chester’s favor, with the Sheriff’s Dept. ordered to pay Bryant $10 million, Chester $9 million and the LAFD to pay both $6 million each. Coincidentally, the verdict was reached on Mamba Day (8/24), a day honoring the late basketball star whose jersey numbers were 8 and 24.
