Family of Bob Saget has filed a lawsuit to block the authorities from releasing videos and photos regarding the investigation of the death of the comedian.
America’s much-loved comedian was found dead in a hotel room in Orlando on 9th January.
Bob Saget’s family announced last week that the autopsy of the late comedian determined that the death was caused by ”accidental head trauma”
“They concluded that he accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it, and went to sleep. No drugs or alcohol were involved,” the family said in a statement.
Bob Saget’s wife and daughters have sued the authorities for releasing videos and photos from the investigation stating that these records are very personal and violated their right to privacy.
They stated that the release of these videos and photos will be causing them “irreparable harm in the form of extreme mental pain, anguish, and emotional distress.”
Brian Bieber, who is representing the family of Bob Saget stated that his clients are highly concerned about the videos and photos being released in public without their consent.
“The facts of the investigation should be made public, but these materials should remain private out of respect for the dignity of Mr. Saget and his family,” Bieber said. “It’s very simple — from a human and legal standpoint, the Saget family’s privacy rights outweigh any public interest in disclosure of this sensitive information.”
The lawsuit states that the videos and pictures “graphically depict Mr. Saget” and the release of such information and documentation will be violating the constitutional rights of privacy observed by every American citizen.
“The Records are confidential and exempt from disclosure under Florida law,” the lawsuit says, “… any release or dissemination of the Records by Defendants would violate such rights.”
The family is trying their level best to refrain the authorities from releasing the documents as this will violate their privacy because they will be circulated across the internet immediately. Bob Saget was known as America’s favorite dad through his role in “Full house” and later as the original host of “America’s funniest home videos.” He was on a tour for stand-up comics when he was found dead in a room in hotel Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes.
