Kobe Bryant Hearing

An attorney for the alleged victim in the Kobe Bryant sexual assault case has asked the judge to force both sides to set a trial date as soon as possible.

Attorney John Clune said in a court filing that since the N-B-A star was charged with rape last July, the woman has been forced to quit school, can't live at home, can't talk to her friends, and has received literally hundreds of phone calls and e-mails threatening death or mutilation.

Clune said prosecutors had no objection to setting a trial date.

Prosecution spokeswoman Krista Flannigan and Bryant's attorneys were in court and not immediately available for comment.

In a letter dated yesterday, the woman's mother told the judge that her daughter has lived in four states in the past six months and that she and her husband are constantly worried for her safety.
