Los Angeles, CA – A jury awarded $30 million in damages on Wednesday to the plaintiffs in a lawsuit against Los Angeles County over the improper taking and sharing of pictures from the fatal helicopter crash which claimed the lives of NBA star Kobe Bryant and eight others in 2020.
Bryant’s widow, Vanessa Bryant, was initially awarded $16 million by the jury, but a juror pointed out an error in the verdict, according to Yahoo Sports . It was initially the intent of the jury that plaintiffs Vanessa Bryant and Christopher Chester split $30 million in damages.
After the juror pointed out the error, Vanessa Bryant agreed and her awarded damages were reduced to $15 million.
Kobe Bryant, 41, and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, died on Jan. 26, 2020, when the helicopter flying them and six friends to a basketball tournament at Mamba Academy in Thousand Oaks crashed into a Los Angeles County hillside.
Shortly after the crash that left nine people dead, pictures of the crash site and Bryant’s decapitated body were circulated by first responders who had been at the scene of the helicopter wreck.
LASD Sheriff Alex Villanueva initially expressed horror when he learned that five full-time deputies and three reservists had been involved in taking graphic photographs of the mangled wreckage in the wake of the helicopter crash, KMSB reported.
“I was horrified,” Sheriff Villanueva said. “I just felt betrayed by my own deputies.”
“It’s such a hard thing to do as a first responder, go to a scene of such a horrific accident, talking to the families, three families that were there at the Lost Hills station, personally, and their concerns about privacy, and how we could make the day better for them if any way possible,” the sheriff continued. “And to have this happen, it was heartbreaking.”The deputies were sent […]

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
