Bryant accuser can't be called a 'victim'
They won't be able to call her a "victim." A judge in Colorado says prosecutors, witnesses and others taking part in the trial of Kobe Bryant won't be able to use the term "victim" to refer to the woman accusing him of rape. The judge says he agrees with Bryant's lawyers -- who say the word implies guilt, and that it shouldn't be used. The judge says the woman has to be referred to by name, or as a "person."
