The widow and three daughters of the late American comedian and actor Bob Saget have filed a lawsuit in Orange County, Florida to block the disclosure of details surrounding his death.
“The plaintiffs would suffer irreparable harm in the form of extreme mental pain, anguish and emotional distress if the records were released or released to the public,” reads the document. Orange County Sheriff John Mina and the District 9 Medical Examiner’s Office are named as defendants.
Saget’s family is seeking to block the publication of the star’s autopsy records, as well as photos and videos related to his death that may be requested by the media.
Cause of death of comedian Bob Saget revealed
“Based on information and beliefs, some of these recordings graphically depict Mr. Saget, his likeness or characteristics, or parts of him, and were made by the defendants during the defendants’ investigations,” the trial reveals.
Saget, known for his brash comedy and roles on popular shows like ‘Full House’ and ‘How I Met Your Mother,’ died last month at the age of 65 in Orlando, Florida, shocking fans and many players in the entertainment industry. According to the family, Saget died after hitting the back of his head and then falling asleep.
An autopsy report confirmed blunt head trauma as the cause of death and revealed Saget was also Covid-19 positive. He said no toxins or drugs were involved in his death.
The family says the facts of the investigation should be made public, but nothing else. “It’s very simple – from a human and legal perspective – the privacy rights of the Saget family outweigh any public interest in disclosing this sensitive information,” declares the lawsuit.
