According to NBC, the verdict of the Kobe Bryant accident scene leak case was announced, Vanessa and another plaintiff, Chris Chester (who lost his wife and daughter in the accident), won the case, and Los Angeles County needed to compensate the former for $16 million and the latter for $15 million.

After the accident, Los Angeles County police officers and firefighters took and disseminated photographs of Kobe Bryant and other victims of the accident without permission. An internal police investigation revealed that a field worker took 25-100 photos and spread them to colleagues and the internet.

The nine jurors reached a unanimous verdict, agreeing with Vanessa and her lawyer that firefighters took and shared photos of Kobe Bryant and her daughter's remains violated her privacy and caused her mental anguish.
