The family of comedian and “Full House” star Bob Saget, who died from a fall in his Orlando hotel room last month, has been granted a temporary halt on the release of his medical records, reports said.

Saget, 65, died from an accidental blow to the head, his family said. An autopsy concluded the actor likely fell backward, struck his head, and died Jan. 9 in his hotel room at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando.

The actor’s family on Tuesday filed a lawsuit against Orange County Sheriff John Mina and the medical examiner’s office to stop the release of additional medical records. According to WESH, the court documents claim the disclosure of records would cause the Saget family to “suffer irreparable harm in the form of extreme mental pain, anguish, and emotional distress.”

On Wednesday afternoon, a judge agreed with the family and blocked the release of further records in Saget’s death, WESH reported.

The family’s lawsuit argues no public interest would be served by the release of the records to the public. Photographs, video and audio recordings, autopsy information and other records generated during the death investigation would all remain private under the family’s request.

Saget’s widow, Kelly Rizzo, and three daughters from a previous marriage filed the suit on Tuesday.

Earlier reports had originally speculated he may have died from a stroke or heart attack, or COVID-19, which he said he had in December. However, family members said that was not the case.

“The authorities have determined that Bob passed from head trauma,” the Saget family said Feb. 9 in a statement reported by multiple news outlets, including CNN. “They have concluded that he accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it and went to sleep. No drugs or alcohol were involved.”

In the statement, the family said it has been overwhelmed with “the incredible outpouring of love from Bob’s fans” and was comforted by it.

“As we continue to mourn together, we ask everyone to remember the love and laughter that Bob brought to this world, and the lessons he taught us all: to be kind to everyone, to let the people you love know you love them, and to face difficult times with hugs and laughter,” the family also said in the statement.–182988655/Amp/–182988655/Amp/
