On Monday, a Florida judge ruled to make permanent order that would restrict the release of photos and video related to the death of comedian Bob Saget.

The 65-year-old “Full House” actor died in a Florida hotel room on January 9 and according to the medical examiner, Saget’s cause of death was due to head trauma, most likely from an accidental fall.

Saget’s family had filed a lawsuit that would keep the documents from public disclosure, citing their privacy.

The Associated Press report that Circuit Judge Vincent Chiu issued his ruling on Monday at the behest of the actor’s widow Kelly Rizzo, and their daughters:

During a court hearing in Orlando, Circuit Judge Vincent Chiu said he would issue a permanent injunction that had been requested by Saget’s widow, Kelly Rizzo, and his three daughters. The family members had filed a lawsuit seeking to stop the release of any records from the local medical examiner’s office and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office involving the investigation into Saget’s death.

Saget, 65, was found dead on Jan. 9 in a room at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando. He had performed in the area the previous night as part of a stand-up tour.

Saget died from an accidental blow to the head, likely from a fall backward, according to the medical examiner. An autopsy report showed that Saget had an abrasion on his scalp, a fracture at the base of his skull, fractures around his eye sockets, bruises to the brain, and bleeding between the brain and tissue covering the brain. A toxicology analysis didn’t show any illicit drugs or toxins in Saget’s body.

“In the weeks since Bob’s passing, we have been overwhelmed with the incredible outpouring of love from Bob’s fans, which has been a great comfort to us and for which we are eternally grateful,” the family said. “Now that we have the final conclusions from the authorities’ investigation, we felt it only proper that the fans hear those conclusions directly from us.”

The authorities noted that Saget “accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it, and went to sleep.”

The statement said that “no drugs or alcohol were involved.”

“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 statement concluded.

In a statement, Saget’s costar of “Full House” and “Fuller House” Candace Cameron Bure noted that she believed there were more questions surrounding her television dad’s death.

In her interview with Fox News, Bure said that she was still in close contact with Saget’s wife Kelly.

She said, “I keep in close contact with Kelly, It’s been difficult these past couple of weeks because of more things that have come out and there’s a lot of questions.”

She said she is “trying not to think about it” because she wants “to remember Bob and what a kind and loving and amazing person that he was and let it be that.”

“It’s been a little over a month, and there are days that are great and there are days that just hits you,” the star said.

Bure, who is a Christian, made sweatshirts that read, “Love like Jesus, hug-like Bob,” which are available online.

“I did it really for selfish reasons because I love Jesus,” the star said. “He’s the best example of humanity and sacrifice. And then there’s nobody that hugs like Bob, and I will always remember that as a huge part of his legacy.”

The said proceeds from the sweatshirt sales will go directly to the foundation that Saget raised millions of dollars after his sister, Gay, died from the disease, the Scleroderma Research Foundation.
