It looks like Vanessa Bryant wants the public to know the names of the deputies that have been accused of allegedly taking photos at the crash site where Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and seven others tragically lost their lives.
According to KTLA, Vanessa’s attorney’s filed an amended complaint in federal court that added four deputies and the L.A. County Fire Department to the civil rights lawsuit that she already filed against the Sheriff’s Department and the county. While Vanessa wants the deputies’ names to be identified, county lawyers want to keep the names of the deputies sealed so their personal information doesn’t become accessible to the public.
As previously reported, last September, Vanessa sued the L.A. County Sheriff’s Office over the alleged leaked photos.
On Saturday, Vanessa took to her Instagram to address the file of the complaint and said, “The Sheriff’s Department wants to redact the names of the deputies that took and/ or shared photos of my husband, daughter, and other victims. They want their names to be exempt from the public. Anyone else facing allegations would be unprotected, named, and released to the public. Not all law enforcement is bad. These specific deputies need to be held accountable for their actions just like everyone else. #doublestandard.”
The lawsuit seeks seeks damages for negligence and invasion of privacy.
As mentioned before, the lawsuit detailed that the photos were exposed when a deputy allegedly showed them to a woman trying to impress her. That is when the bartender overheard the conversation and notified the department.
