Feb. 26, 2020
Kobe Bryant’s wife, Vanessa, on Monday filed a lawsuit against the company that owned the helicopter that crashed last month, killing her husband, 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and the seven other people on board.
The wrongful death lawsuit was filed shortly before a memorial service, held at the Staples Centre.
In the memorial Vanessa paid tribute to her husband and late daughter.
The 72-page lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court alleges that Island Express Helicopters put the helicopter in the air when conditions were not safe for flying.

The suit according to TMZ say the doomed January 26 flight failed to assess weather data prior to the flight.
The fog in Los Angeles was so dense on the morning the helicopter crashed into a hillside in Calabasas despite others being grounded over weather conditions.
Bryant alleges in the suit that the pilot failed to abort the flight even though he knew of cloudy conditions.
It is unclear how much in damages she is seeking. The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash.
