Vanessa Bryant is currently suing the family of Ara Zobayan, the man who was flying the helicopter that killed him, Kobe Bryant and 6 other passengers, along with Island Express Helicopters in a wrongful death lawsuit. Vanessa wants both parties to be held financially responsible for the crash.

The family of Ara Zobayan want the wrongful death case moved out of Los Angeles due to Bryant’s popularity in the city. The family believes the trial would be unfair. Adding that all of the passengers lived in Orange County, another reason the case should be moved.

Officials believe Zobayan got disoriented when he flew into heavy fog and accidentally flew down into the mountains when he thought he was elevating above the fog layer.
