The families of the victims are furious over a report in the Los Angeles Times that claims county employees took photos at the crash site and distributed them to others.

The two families who lost loved ones in the accident were awarded $2.5 million (£2.1 million) in November for emotional distress, but Mrs. Bryant refused to accept the settlement and has continued to sue the county.

Mrs. Bryant broke down in court last week as she testified about how she was at home with her other children when she read the LA Times story.

The jury agreed with Vanessa Bryant and her attorneys that her privacy had been violated when deputies and firefighters took and distributed photographs of her and her daughter Gianna’s skeletal remains.

During the 11-day trial, Ms. Bryant testified through tears that learning about the photos only added to her anguish over the deaths of her husband and daughter.

A month after the crash, Ms. Bryant testified for more than three hours on Friday, saying that she wanted to begin grieving the loss of her husband and daughter but was instead confronted with “fresh horror” when she learned of the leaked photos.
