Dodgers Partly Liable for Fan’s Injuries
A jury found the Los Angeles Dodgers partly liable after a fan was beaten unconscious after a game.
Bryan Stow was cheering for the San Francisco Giants when he attended Dodgers Opening Day in 2011.
After the game, Stow was attacked and severely beaten in the Dodgers Stadium parking lot.
He still requires constant medical assistance from the injuries he suffered.
Earlier this year, Marvin Norwood and Louie Sanchez pleaded guilty for their roles in Stow’s beating.
In a civil case, a jury agreed that the Dodgers, Norwood, and Sanchez should pay $18 million in damages.
The Dodgers’ share will be about $13 million dollars.
Stow’s attorneys argued that the team didn’t provide enough security and lighting at the parking lot.
The Dodgers say Stow shared some responsibility because he was drunk.
