Kobe Bryant Case

By  | 

Attorneys for Kobe Bryant are asking a federal judge to force the woman accusing him rape to turn over her medical and educational records.

According to a filing in her civil lawsuit today, the woman's lawyers are refusing to release the records or identify her health care providers.

Bryant's attorneys say that violates court rules and unfairly hinders their ability to defend Bryant or prepare expert witnesses.

The woman's lawsuit seeks unspecified money damages from Bryant for the alleged mental and emotional injuries the woman has suffered since their encounter at an upscale hotel near Vail in June 2003. Bryant says the sex was consensual.

In today's court filing, Bryant's attorneys say the woman has repeatedly emphasized her alleged mental and emotional injuries without documented proof.

The woman filed her federal lawsuit against Bryant in August, three weeks before the criminal case against him collapsed in Eagle County. A hearing in the case is scheduled for Wednesday.
