Wrongful death lawsuit filed today. I kind of agree with the article that it is a little unusual that she wouldn't at least wait until the FAA completes it's investigation.
And also suing Kobe’s hand picked, long time pilot.
Pretty poor taste.
If Vanessa Bryant sued three months from now, it would be front-page news. Filing on the day of the memorial limits the press coverage. The window to file claims against the pilot’s estate may close before the NTSB issues its final report, so waiting for that really wasn’t an option.I'll never understand why the natural process in an accidental death always has to involve a lawsuit. The money won't bring them back and it's not like the Bryants are hurting for capital. No need to piss in the face of the family of the guy who died that doesn't have billions coming in from jersey sales, endorsements, and the like.
I only read the ESPN article, but the complaint sounds like it’s fairly pro forma. I doubt it reveals anything about Vanessa Bryant’s intentions. Perhaps she will aggressively pursue everyone she thinks is responsible for the deaths of her husband and daughter, but this could also just be a mechanism to get all the insurance companies engaged.
