An injunction has been sought declaring material gathered during the inquest into Saget’s death confidential and should not be allowed in public records requests.

These include photographs and video and audio recordings, according to the lawsuit.

Saget’s family argued that these materials would cause them “irreparable harm in the form of extreme mental pain, anguish and emotional distress”, if released.

Circuit Judge Vincent Chiu will take the family’s case. There are no scheduled hearings yet.

Saget was found dead in his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando on Jan. 9 by hotel security.

Saget’s death was confirmed by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

“Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call regarding an unresponsive man in a hotel room,” the office tweeted at the time.

Saget’s cause of death was found to be a brain bleed, cops said.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Saget’s cause of death to The Sun on Wednesday, February 10.

They said: ‘We can confirm that the cause of death was internal brain bleeding after it emerged that Mr Saget had hit his head on something in his hotel room.

“We discovered a bruise on the back of the neck.

“No narcotics or alcohol were found in Mr. Saget’s system.

“We believe he did not understand the seriousness of the internal damage caused and fell asleep shortly thereafter.”

Saget was best known for his role as Danny Tanner, the patriarch of the Tanner family on Full House. He played the role opposite John Stamos and Dave Coulier.

Her daughters on TV played naked Candace Cameron, Jodie Sweetin and twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen playing baby Michelle Tanner.

‘DEVASTATED’

Saget’s family have broken their silence following the shocking death of the actor and comedian.

“We are devastated to confirm that our beloved Bob has passed away,” the family said in a statement.

“He was everything to us and we want you to know how much he loved his fans, performing live and bringing people from all walks of life together with laughter.”

Saget’s family asked for privacy at the time, but invited fans to “join us in remembering the love and laughter Bob brought to the world.”

He is survived by his wife, Kelly Rizzo, and his three daughters Lara, Aubrey and Jennifer from his first marriage to Sherri Kramer.
