Victim assistance group argues against giving records to Bryant's lawyers

EAGLE, Colo. -- Notes that a victim's advocate made about the woman who accused Kobe Bryant of sexual assault should not be turned over to Bryant's lawyers, a victim-assistance group said in a court filing Wednesday.

The notes consist of a single sentence written by the victim's advocate after she sat in on a law-enforcement interview with the accuser, attorneys for the Resource Center of Eagle County said.

Bryant's lawyers subpoenaed the notes in September.

The center, which provided the victim's advocate, said the notes are protected under Colorado law and that the accuser hasn't waived her right to keep them private.

Bryant, 25, is charged with felony sexual assault. The Los Angeles Lakers guard is accused of raping the 19-year-old on June 30 at the Edwards hotel where she worked. He has said the two had consensual sex.

Bryant is scheduled to appear in state district court on Thursday for a hearing.
