- LA County lawyers are saying Vanessa Bryant has no legal basis to sue over crash site pictures. Bryant's suit alleges that responding deputies took unauthorized photos of the helicopter crash site, where Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and seven others were killed.

In court papers, county lawyers wrote that the county does not condone such actions and has taken corrective personnel actions, but also said Bryant does not have a viable legal claim, citing that the pictures were not publicly distributed.
