Judge rules Kobe Bryant’s widow Vanessa must turn over private therapy records

A federal magistrate judge has ruled that Kobe Bryant’s widow must turn over her private therapy records to Los Angeles County as part of her lawsuit against the county over photos of her dead husband and daughter. In the Monday ruling, Charles Eick ordered Vanessa Bryant and her therapist to produce the documents by Nov. 29. He also ordered her to turn over records dating to January 2017 after the county had asked for her records dating to January 2010. “The requests are plainly relevant to the claims and defenses herein and, as narrowed by this order, the requests are proportional to the needs of the case,” Eick wrote in his ruling. Bryant is suing the county for invasion of privacy, alleging that county first responders improperly shared photos of human remains from a helicop...
