A polling firm has begun interviewing Eagle-area residents about the Kobe Bryant sexual assault case. Legal experts say such research could be used by the defense to seek a change of venue.

A spokeswoman for Eagle County Sheriff Joseph Hoy says the sheriff
was among those interviewed recently.

Paul Talmey of Talmey-Drake Research and Strategy in Boulder says his firm was conducting a survey in Eagle County. He declined to say who he was working for or whether the activity was connected to the Bryant case.

A spokeswoman for the district attorney says prosecutors are not
doing a survey.

The 24-year-old Los Angeles Lakers star is charged with raping a 19-year-old worker at the Edwards resort hotel where he stayed June 30th. He is due back in court in October.
