Bryant Case

Attorneys to question Bryant jury pool

Lawyers in the Kobe Bryant case are getting ready to begin questioning potential jurors behind closed doors today. On Friday, 300 Eagle County, Colorado, residents arrived at the courthouse to fill out questionnaires. They're designed to give prosecutors and defense attorneys an initial look at the people who could decide Bryant's fate. The jury pool in the case is being expanded. A state courts spokeswoman says 100 people summoned for potential service in a separate case settled Friday now also could find themselves on the Bryant jury. Bryant is accused of raping a hotel worker last summer. The NBA star says the woman consented to a sexual encounter. Opening statements aren't expected until after Labor Day.
