The family of Kobe BryantLower Merion High School graduate — has agreed to a settlement regarding the use of photos of the NBA legend. Andrew Dalton reported the story for ABC News.

In a Los Angeles court, Bryants agreed to $28.5 million in recompense to end a lawsuit against law enforcement officers and firefighters who took and shared photos of the superstar at the crash site.

The proposed agreement resolves any future claims by Bryant’s three surviving daughters, related issues pending in state court, and other costs.

“Today marks the successful culmination of Mrs. Bryant’s courageous battle to hold accountable those who engaged in this grotesque conduct,” Bryant’s attorney Luis Li said in a statement. “She fought for her husband, her daughter, and all those in the community whose deceased family were treated with similar disrespect.”

Mira Hashmall, the attorney representing Los Angeles County, called the statement “fair and reasonable” adding, “We hope Ms. Bryant and her children continue to heal from their loss.”
