Lawyer once dubbed ‘attorney for the damned’

September 29, 2004

DENVER — The Kobe Bryant defense team that saw rape charges
against the NBA star thrown out three weeks ago faces a tough new
challenge in civil court: L. Lin Wood, a fearless, media-savvy
Atlanta lawyer once called the “attorney for the damned.”

Wood is representing Bryant’s 20-year-old accuser in a lawsuit
in which the woman is seeking an unspecified amount of money, as
well as public vindication.
