Kobe Bryant Pilot's Family Wants Crash Case Moved Out Of L.A.
© Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports
The family of pilot Ara Zobayan is begging a judge to move Vanessa Bryant's wrongful death case out of L.A. because Kobe Bryant is so popular there, claiming it will be impossible to get a fair trial...

"The notoriety and popularity of the late Kobe Bryant in Los Angeles County is detailed herein and reached a level that left no person in the county unaware of his role in branding Los Angeles as his city," Zobayan's family says in new court docs.

"No other single individual in recent memory, sports figure or otherwise, has been considered by the people to be such a personification of their city of Los Angeles. "

"But with that unprecedented level of acclaim comes a lack of impartiality and objectivity by potential jurors about the merits under the law of the claims asserted in this lawsuit by the Bryant family."

I dunno, do you maybe need to sue in order to get the insurance money? Sometimes it's like that.

Why is she suing? What does she want?

They should move it. Every single person on that flight died. Not just Kobe Bryant and his daughter. There shouldn’t be a trial in the first place.

what kind of moron disagrees with this. Vanessa must be pretending Kobe wasn't in charge.
