A “Kobe Bryant Law” has been implemented by the governor of California. The regulation makes it a crime for first responders to take unauthorized pictures of a dead person at an accident scene. This was the answer by Governor Gavin Newsom to the backlash from the Kobe Bryant helicopter crash with local deputies accused of taking or sharing death pics for unofficial business.
Kobe Bryant along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and 7 other people, was killed in the January 26 incident when their chopper crashed in Calabasas on an extremely foggy day.

Kobe Bryant’s widow, Vanessa Bryant, filed a lawsuit against the L.A. County Sheriff’s Office over the alleged accident photo. The case involves negligence, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

TMZ reports that at least one deputy was accused of using a Kobe death photo to try and pick up a woman at a bar.

It will now be a misdemeanor for a first responder to take or share pics from an accident or crime scene for any purpose outside official law enforcement or genuine public interest.
