Bryant Case

By  | 

Jury summonses are being mailed in Eagle County, Colorado, for Kobe Bryant's sexual assault trial.

State officials say 999 residents will receive the summonses to report to court on Aug. 27.

The courts typically send out about 250 summonses for trials, but widespread news coverage of the Bryant case and a high number of vacation homes in the county prompted officials to send out more than usual.

The Los Angeles Lakers star is accused of raping a woman at the Vail-area resort where she worked last summer. He has said the sex was consensual.
