What’s going on:
- Vanessa Bryant filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Island Express Helicopters in February after her husband, Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant, and daughter, Gianna Bryant, died in a helicopter crash at the end of January, as I reported for the Deseret News.
- The wrongful death lawsuit argued Island Express, agents, employees and pilot Ara George Zobayan had a duty to take careful circumstances given who was inside the helicopter.
- In new court documents, Vanessa Bryant “seeks economic damages, noneconomic damages, prejudgment interest, punitive damages, and other relief as the court deems just and proper.”
- “Although the total specific amount of personal injury damages that plaintiff seeks is TBD, Kobe Bryant’s future lost earnings equals hundreds of millions of dollars,” the court document says, according to E! News.
