Los Angeles Lakers player, Kobe Bryant has reportedly struck a secret deal with a female hotel employee works in a Colorado mountain resort, who accused him for sexual assault he'd done during his vacation there in June 2003.
ABC-TV network quoted unnamed sources reporting Bryant and his accuser had agreed on terms, but they had yet to make the deal official, which is expected to be signed later this week. Confirmation uttered by lawyers involved in the case saying February 28, 2005 Bryant's scheduled questioning under oath had been stopped shortly before he was due to speak, raising media speculation that a settlement was imminent.
