Vanessa Bryant Plans to File Wrongful Death Lawsuit After Loss of Kobe and Gianna

Kobe Bryant’s widow Vanessa has reportedly filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the company that owns the fateful helicopter that crashed last month, taking the life of her husband and daughter.

According to TMZ, the lawsuit claims that the company violated flight rules by allowing the copter to take flight in bad weather and poor visibility.  It also claims that the pilot, Ara Zobayan, was disciplined for flying in low visibility back in 2015.

Kobe and Gianna Bryant were among nine people killed when the helicopter crashed on Jan. 26th in Calabasas, CA.

News of the lawsuit appears the same day the Lakers held a public memorial for Bryant at Staples Center.
