Jury finds Dodgers negligent in Bryan Stow lawsuit

Kevork Djansezian

Stow was seriously injured after being attacked on Opening Day, 2011.

More than three years ago, Bryan Stow was beaten and critically injured in the parking lot of Dodger Stadium, ostensibly for nothing more than rooting for the Giants. Stow sued the Los Angeles Dodgers and their former owner, Frank McCourt, accusing them of doing nothing to fix a security problem that was getting worse and worse. According to the Associated Press, a jury agreed:

The jury found damages of about $18 million but said the Dodgers were responsible for only a quarter of the sum. The rest of the responsibility was split between the two men who beat fan Bryan Stow.

Translated: Stow will see $4.5 million, before taxes, which will then be immediately turned over to hospitals and rehabilitation clinics. Still, it's a better result than counting on the generosity of Tim Flannery to fix everything.

McCourt was also named in the suit, but he was not found liable for any of the damages.
