Until the State of California opted to broadcast images of Kobe Bryant’s horrific death without his consent, his legacy was still very much intact. Naturally, the Bryants were incensed by this event, and Vanessa sued the state.
As a result, the legal battle dragged on for a while until reaching a conclusion in 2023. The State of California has agreed to pay Vanessa Bryant and her daughters a staggering $30 million as of today, February 28, 2023.
In place of actual personal damages, the payment is made. The Bryants, who already control a large $600 million empire that Kobe built, is expected to become even wealthier. But we believe that this victory is more sentimental than material.

Vanessa Bryant Fought Tooth and Nail to Preserve Kobe’s Legacy
In August 2022, a jury decided to pay $15 million to Vanessa for her action. Yet the government chose to provide them with an additional $15 million as compensation for the girls and the full and final settlement of the lawsuit.
According to Kobe’s attorney, Luis Li,
Today is the triumphant conclusion of Mrs. Bryant’s valiant fight to hold those responsible for this obscene behavior accountable. She battled for her husband, her daughter, and all those in the neighborhood whose deceased family members were treated with equal disrespect. We are hopeful that this settlement and her triumph at trial will put an end to this practice.
After the unfortunate accident in 2020, Vanessa discovered that some government workers were treating the dead with a great deal of disdain.

When Sheriffs and Firefighters shared pictures of Kobe Bryant’s deceased remains
Vanessa may have been incensed and appalled by the actions of the government employees who posted images of Kobe’s remains online.
Bryant’s family thought it was right to sue the government for the abuse of their husband and father. For negligence and breach of privacy, they were sued.
Vanessa made the claim in September of 2022, and they were successful in August after a two-year-long, arduous trial. They received their full compensation today. We hope that this marks the conclusion of the Bryant family’s fight to uphold Kobe’s legacy.
