Bryant Case

By  | 

The judge in the Kobe Bryant case has expanded a gag order after lawyers for the woman accusing the basketball star of rape said she's rethinking whether to participate in the trial.

The judge's sweeping order is in response to a motion by Bryant's lawyers, however details haven't been released.

Bryant is accused of raping a hotel worker at a resort near Vail last June. Lawyers for the woman appeared on television Wednesday to discuss their client's concerns about the upcoming trial.

John Clune and Lin Wood expressed their frustration about court mistakes which have hurt their client.

The new order specifically bans prosecutors, law enforcement officials, witnesses, defense lawyers, Bryant and the accuser from talking about the case. The trial is set to begin Aug. 27.
