Bryant's lawyers claim the pictures of Kobe and Gianna's bodies were passed around on 28 LA County Sheriff's Department devices and others belonging to a dozen firefighters, CBS Los Angeles reports.

Attorney's said the photos were shown in bars and at an awards gala.

Bryant's team said the defendants also engaged in a cover up and destroyed evidence of their misconduct.

They also said they have a witness who will say it's a well-known practice among law enforcement in Southern California to take and share photos of human remains.

Earlier this month, a federal judge rejected LA County's motion to have the lawsuit thrown out.
