Country music star Naomi Judd‘s family was granted a temporary court order to keep her death records sealed from the public record.
In court documents obtained by Fox News, Larry Strickland and Judd’s two daughters, Wynonna and Ashley, filed for injunctive relief in Williamson County, Tennessee.
According to the family, photo and video evidence, along with other documents of Judd’s death that the Williamson County Sheriff’s Department gathered, would cause “emotional distress, pain and mental anguish” for “years to come” if released.
The temporary order will be discussed in an evidentiary hearing on September 12.
Judd committed suicide from a self-inflicted gunshot wound at her home in Leiper’s Fork, Tennessee, on April 30, 2022, at the age of 76. She had long been struggling with depression accompanied by anxiety, panic attacks, and suicidal thoughts.
The medications prescribed to her, including lithium, produced side effects including facial edema, alopecia and tremors, which caused her further emotional distress.
