Kobe Bryant Challenges His Accuser


— December 15, 2003

Kobe Bryant filed his pre-trial motions today. He is seeking to introduce evidence of his accuser’s two purported suicide attempts and of her being prescribed anti-psychotic medication. He is also challenging the constitutionality of the rape shield law — on it’s face — because the standard for admitting prior bad acts of the accuser is higher than that provided for admitting prior bad acts of the defendant.
