Family Of Beaten SF Giants Fan To Sue LA Dodgers
LOS ANGELES (CBS) – The family of Bryan Stow was expected to file a lawsuit against the Los Angeles Dodgers Tuesday in L.A. Superior Court.
Stow, 42, was brutally beaten in the parking lot of Dodger Stadium on March 31. He was flown to San Francisco General Hospital last week after more than a month of treatment at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center. His sister said Sunday he has stopped having seizures but has not regained consciousness, even though he is no longer in a coma.
Stow still was listed in critical condition.
Attorney Thomas V. Girardi is representing the Stow family in the suit that was expected to be filed before noon Tuesday. The lawsuit will reportedly test the Dodgers’ liability for the attack, stating that it took 15 minutes for stadium personnel to respond when they were notified of the beating.
The Stow family was not suing the Dodgers for a specified amount of money, however, the suit states that it would take $45 to $50 million in medical benefits to give Bryan Stow a good quality of life.
The Los Angeles Police Department has not been named in the case.
