A battery case against Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant may proceed. The battery case involves the DEATH of a fan who was hit by Bryant back in November 2005 while attending a the L.A. Lakers/Memphis Grizzles basketball game.

According to legal documents, the victim Geeslin and his friend attended the basketball game at the Grizzles home arena, FedEX Forum in Memphis, TN. The two were seated court side. During the game, a L.A. Lakers player recovered a ball at the Grizzles end of the floor. The player then attempted to pass the ball to Bryant, but Bryant wasn't able to fully control the ball. While trying to control the ball, Bryant came into contract with a Memphis player, as both players careened out of bounds.

As they went out of bounds, the legal documents say that Bryant hit into or onto the plaintiff.

Geeslin alleges that when Bryant got up, trying to get himself back into the game, and then he pushed his forearm into Geeslin's chest in a RUDE, UNNECESSARY manner, which caused the plaintiff's injury. Geeslin goes on to say that that Brant "glared" at him and moved back onto the court without even apologizing for the act.
.Two days later, Geeslin sough medical attention for pain in the chest. He was diagnosed with a bruised lung cavity and received medicines, and a breathing machine. Two weeks later, his symptoms WENT AWAY, but he claimed that he was still suffering, as he was suffering from anxiety, caused by the incident.

After Geeslin's death in June 2008, The Amended Complaint was filed, as it says that the incident was an assault, battery, and an emotional distress for Gesslin.

The district court found that that Gesslin "assumed the risk or consented to the entire contact between he and the Defendant" by sitting court side during the game. However, when Bryant pushed away, after the collision, and then glared over at Gesslin, Bryant "MAY HAVE" caused the injury/stress for the victim.

Also, Bryant never gave any deposition testimony nor an affidavit in opposition to the motion.

It's expected that the case will be settled out of court.

This is a joke in itself, but seats at basketball games should be moved back, as well as the camera men and people at the ends of the floor. Someone is gonna lose a career because they land on someone down there.
