Vanessa Bryant Is Taking Legal Action Against Helicopter Company

Shortly before Kobe and Gianna Bryant's memorial service on February 24, Vanessa Bryant filed a 72-page lawsuit against Island Express Helicopters. Island Express is the company that owned the Sikorsky S-76B helicopter that crashed into a hillside in Calabasas, Calif., on Jan. 26 amid foggy conditions, killing Kobe, Gianna, and seven other people on board, including pilot Ara George Zobayan.
Vanessa hasn't spoken out about Island Express Helicopters or Zobayan, but she has publicly shared her grief with the world. At the "Celebration of Life" for Kobe and Gianna, the mother of four delivered a heartfelt eulogy in their honor.
"We love and miss you, Boo-Boo and Gigi. May you both rest in peace and have fun in heaven."
Bryant's suit names Island Express Helicopters and "Doe 1," a legal representative or successor for Zobayan, as defendants. It's unclear who "Doe 1" is, but it's common for this term to be used when a name can't be determined or is being withheld for legal reasons. BuzzFeed News reports that the pilot has been accused of failing to, quote, "properly monitor and assess the weather prior to takeoff," "obtain proper weather data," and "abort the flight when he knew of the cloudy conditions." He's also accused of "improperly" flying the helicopter in so-called instrument flight rules, or IFR conditions. TMZ reports that the suit also alleges that Zobayan was "disciplined in 2015 for violating the visual flight rule minimums by flying into an airspace of reduced visibility."
As for Island Express Helicopters, TMZ adds that the suit argues the helicopter shouldn't have been allowed to fly in the first place, given the low visibility. The legal filing alleges the chopper, quote, "was not safe." The company's helicopters were reportedly only certified for visual flight rules, or VFR, not IFR conditions.
"They do not do instrumentation flight. They have to do visual flight only. If it's less than 2,000 feet visibility, they're just not taking off."
The lawsuit also admonishes the business for not equipping its choppers with a terrain avoidance warning system.
Island Express Helicopters responded in a statement to TMZ, simply stating,
"This was a tragic accident. We will have no comment on the pending lawsuit."
The company has spoken out about the incident before, noting how it was "deeply saddened" by the tragedy. The company stated on its website shortly after the crash,
"Our top priority is providing assistance to the families of the passengers and the pilot. We hope that you will respect their privacy at this extremely difficult time."
Island Express Helicopters also made it a point to commend Zobayan for working "over 10 years" with the company and clocking "over 8,000 flight hours."
As of Jan. 26, 2020, all of the company's helicopter services were suspended "until further notice." Island Express explained the decision, saying,
"The shock of the accident affected all staff, and management decided that service would be suspended until such time as it was deemed appropriate for staff and customers."
In light of the lawsuit, it's unclear how the company will fare going forward. The legal filing includes 28 complaints against Island Express and Zobayan combined, and seeks punitive damages, as well as, quote, "damages for loss of love, affection, care, society, service, comfort, support, right to support, companionship, solace or moral support and expectations of future support and counseling." Bryant is also seeking, quote, "money for loss of financial support and for burial and funeral expenses."
Amid the lawsuit news, investigators are still trying to piece together why Kobe Bryant's helicopter crashed. Engine failure has been ruled out as a possible cause, with the National Transportation Safety Board noting to CNN in early February 2020,
"Viewable sections of the engines showed no evidence of an uncontained or catastrophic internal failure."
CNN transportation expert and former managing director of the NTSB Peter Goelz said of the findings,
"It really just reinforces the tragic nature of this crash. It was a perfectly good helicopter. It was well-equipped. And, unfortunately, it was flying in marginal weather. [...] Apparently the pilot got up into the clouds, realized that he was in a more difficult situation than he had planned on, and tried to escape. Or simply lost situational awareness."
Once the cause is determined, it could play a role in the lawsuit. We'll keep you updated as more details emerge.

I hope the seven other victims who also died get some kind of help for their beloved families too especially the man who lost his wife and has three small kids who are now left with him to raise without their mom just for riding in that Helicopter. I feel bad for Vanessa and her kids but I also hurt for Kobe's parents who were ignored at that Memorial and the other victims too.. Jesus Help!

She has the right to sue, I understand it’s harsh to say this, But Ms. Bryant could’ve earn way more if Kobe did not passed Away. That’s her opportunity cost. Now she is trying to minimize her losses. I believe 50% or more people would do the same if they were in her shoes. The world it’s all about yourself interest or others interests. And that’s the how the world works. It’s cruel but true .

Shes not after the damn money people. She wants justice for her family and the families who lost their lives. It was the companies fault for allowing them go fly. They CAN SAY NO but they are the ones who just wanted KOBE'S MONEY. Good for her for suing those bastsrds. They shouldnt have a dangerous operation opened. Time for a shut down. Also. The most is going for the families and she wont take any of it, she will donate it in her Husband and Gigi honour. 100%

Like most Middle Easterners/Arabs. Arrogant, aggressive idiots.They are always right (sarcasm). Stupid pilot! Risked everyones' lives. Improper equipment, driving fast in low altitude into clouds surrounded by mountains, with spatial disorientation? Experienced pilot, overconfident. Gimme a fukin break. What an ahole. Land in somebody's backyard or turn around. This tragedy should have never happened. So sad. RIP to all that have died.

I agree. She always has been about money. Even in the death of her daughter and husband and others in that helicopter crash, she still finds a way to get more money out of this tragedy. I personally never liked her energy as she comes off as a gold digger. Even her own family has confirmed her intentions. I am not one to wish harm or suffering for other individuals but she has her karma coming her way. If not has already happened.

🏀🏀🏀🏀 TMZ had reports today that the Helicopter Company only has a limited insurance of about 50 million. And also there are reports that the other victim's families have gotten lawyers. So their saying that if all families sue their may not be enough money to go around. How something like this is resolved in court i don't know. What is your opinion's everyone on Vanessa suing?? Do you think she is being greedy?

I’m very saddened for the loss of all the people on that helicopter. But seriously while she’s crying over the loss how can she even think about suing?? Greedy much? Also that cannot replace the lives lost! Shame on her. Maybe there was negligence or what have you, but suing will not bring peace and confort. Also has anyone thought that maybe the pilot suffered some medical emergency that could of led to the accident?? Or is it just me that has thought of this? In any case to those that lost their lives Rest In Peace and May the families find comfort and peace to move on.

I have sympathize with Mrs.Kobe and the rest of the families who lost their precious love ones. I think suing and blaming other people is a form of grieving and releasing anger. But thinking about money is not the time. These people need a good old fashion grieving period with no Xanax or Ativan or any antidepressants. Just cry and grieve and surround yourself with your love ones. Believe time will heal and lessen some of the hurt. But seeking is just just going to keep you fueled with anger.

Suspended service? There’s a new 5star review on google from like 21hours ago, since they’ve said they wouldn’t be flying. The review Seems legit too. There is two new reviews about Kobe, I expected people to spam this place, but they haven’t.
Elizabeth Holmes
Honestly even if the pilot said he wouldnt fly he probably would have found another pilot that would.. just saying. Also the company is doing damage control but might have turned a blind eye to flying when it wasnt ideal conditions before.

Barbara Sturgeon
It was an accident. Apparently the pilot suffered spatial disorientation. Families that lose loved ones grieve and then go through anger and blame. They blame doctors, hospitals, any one they can. It wasn't the helicopter company's fault. Yes, equipment to warn of terrain closeness should be mandatory on helicopters and all aircraft but it isn't. Maybe this tragedy will change things. Hopefully the lawsuit will be dropped.

Really people - she has every right to sue if not for money but for better regulations and to force the company to admonish their pilots to become better pilots and to follow the rules no matter the notable rich people they cater to and also to make sure their helicopters are up to par ... she isn’t doing this for the money - many lives were lost, so I tip my hate off to her because this could happen again to more people ..

Kobe did not own the Helicopter, the company being sued owned the chopper. The company, and the pilot had no buisness flying that day in such bad weather and not having the right terrain surveillance equipment installed in the helicopter. Whether the Bryants are wealthy or not, the company is liable to what happened to all 9 lives lost that day. As far as I am concerned, the Bryant’s as well as the rest of the families of the lives lost should also file suit against this company because of their recklessness caused all of their deaths.

People are angry at Vanessa Bryant for suing...dont be angry at her. Her CHILD was killed in this crash...her husband was killed in this crash....the pilot was negligent if he chose to fly in poor visibility...he cut corners and it cost him not only his life, but the life of innocent kids and parents. I support her decision and I would do the same. Her and the other victims families have been DESTROYED. She has every right to do what shes doing.

I thought it was the pilot that chose to fly in that fog using guidance from the ground. Plus they chose to get on the helicopter.

It is not about Money, my God the Bryant’s have more money than the company that owned the helicopter they died in. This is about holding the company accountable for their actions, their negligence and not having the proper equipment that contributed to the lives lost. The pilot should not have flown during the bad weather that day, the company should not have authorized the flight, period.

And exactly what is that going to solve? All these people lost their lives. Would millions of dollars fill in the void for Mrs. Kobe and the others? Don’t forget, Kobe was there and ultimately that must have been his final decision to proceed. Unfortunately, no one was there for sure. So blame and lawsuits are pointless right now. If she does end up winning I hope she turns over over all the money to the other families. God knows she has enough.

This lawsuit needs to happen. Threat of a lawsuit and the bad publicity is the only way to make these companies take proactive measures with regards to safety and equipment and operate strictly by the rules. Its not about money. She has enough money. Its about the loss of her husband and child including the other families. Without this lawsuit there would be no consequence for the lives lost. Including the pilots life. The law wont go after them because its not a criminal case.

Y’all are something else: KOBE WOULD HAVE NEVER TAKEN A RISK W/GG’S OR THE OTHER KIDS LIVES🤬. His previous pilot stated that Kobe NEVER forced him to fly if he said it was not safe to fly. Kobe might’ve requested crazy aerial maneuvers From time to time, but never while his family or any other child was on board. Everybody’s death is deeply saddening. The pilot had numerous complaints and write ups against him on top of having had issues before for flying under dangerous conditions. The Bryant’s were not the only high rollers this company catered to. By the nature of The lawsuit, it’s clear Several issues aside from the crash itself are being debated. Why shouldn’t Vanessa demand retribution for her husband, daughter and everyone on board deaths if anything that company did caused said deaths. What does her having billions have anything to do w/wanting retribution. None of us know anything regarding Kobe’s estate compensating or helping the families of the others that were killed. We don’t know yet if the other families are going to sue and who they will sue. There are plenty of reasons for the other family members to not be include on the lawsuit. Let’s wait a bit longer to see what happened before passing judgment. A bunch of people of bitching about the other victims not being named by countless celebrities and media outlets. In the end it turned out they asked the Bryant estate to help keep their names of the media because they didn’t want that circus to affect their grieving.

P Sprink again I don’t think she is suing for money her daughter husband and friends had a wrongful death because of a negligent company that allowed a pilot to fly in bad weather,,That’s why she is suing! And the other families aren’t famous and well known like Kobe is so that’s why we probably don’t hear about them but I heard that the other families have a lawsuit as well and you don’t know if she will “pocket” the money from the lawsuit so you can’t make that assumption and really it’s her and her families business of what they decide to do with their money, Have you heard of that family that is suing a cruise line because the grandpa dropped his grand baby out of the window now that’s an example of someone suing for money In my opinion,,,look them up

If it's money she's seeking at least this lawsuit could help prevent future crashes . The helicopter company should now install the terrain devices they need & not allow pilots to fly in bad weather especially if they don't have the safety equipment they need for visuality & terrains

@Simply Simone ah. I mean even with that equipment. Flying in that weather is a bad call. But fair enough

@BB Hoody the company's helicopter didn't have the mandatory equipment required for flying and used in navigation

There was no issues with the chopper. The pilot made the decision to fly in bad weather. How is the helicopter manufacturer at fault???

Serious question... did NO ONE look up into the sky and thought "Hey I can't see shit, why don't we all skip the helicopter ride and take an uber instead" 🤔

Would the terrain equip helped if this person ignored other rules and regulations? How was this company allowed to exist with all the violations it had, it sounds like they were constantly putting people in harms way?
