Stow family to sue Dodgers over beating

As CBS Los Angeles reports, the family of Bryan Stow plans to sue the Los Angeles Dodgers in a lawsuit to be filed around noontime PT.

Stow, of course, was the victim of the senseless beating on Opening Day after the Giants-Dodgers game, in which Stow was clad in a Giants jersey and was jumped after the game for the "crime" of rooting for the Giants. The two suspects, as well as a female that helped them get away, remained at large for months until recent arrests captured who was reportedly the lead attacker.

Stow's family is suing the Dodgers, who did not have a chief of security to begin the year to cut costs (they have one now), for liability of the injury, saying it took 15 minutes for security personnel to respond to the notification of the assault. The Stows are not suing for a specific amount of money, but have said Stow will need $45 to $50 million for a good quality of life.

Stow was just transferred to a San Francisco hospital after being deemed healthy enough to move from L.A. He is no longer having seizures or is in a coma, but has yet to wake up, his sister said.

The guy who committed the crime can get sued too. But he doesn't have any money and probably carries very minimal insurance, if any.  So the reality is the Dodgers pay the bill.  And rightfully so.

The Dodgers won't be found negligent.  It's liability and insurance will pay.  And the judge won't side with an insurance company versus a family with a brain dead father/husband.

Stow family to sue Dodgers over beating

How many hundreds of thousands of opposing fans have been to Dodger Stadium without getting the S kicked out of them? There's an exception to EVERY rule. Every one.    I felt less safe at Fenway than I ever did at Dodger Stadium.  There was less security there, more mob mentality and the nearby subway would be a prime location to commit crime. Nothing against Boston, but let's put this in perspective. I'm tired of people chiming in who have no idea... and have never been to Dodger stadium as an opposing fan.

Blck n Gld
Sometimes people get in fights. It happens at bars all the time. It's a risk of going anywhere.  The person to blame is the guy who committed the crime.  If someone goes in to a KFC and gets their head kicked in, is KFC responsible? Because I saw a clip if this on tv recently. If a guy gets hit over the head with a skateboard in the alley behind safeway, is Safeway responsible? Where does it end?  If someone feels unsafe at Dodger stadium it is their responsibility to seek out help or wait to leave and ensure their own safety.  I know people hate Dodger ownership, but give me a break.

It didn't just happen.  Not only was security inadequate on the night of the attack, which itself is a case for negligence, but there was a consistent pattern of inadequate security at Dodger's Stadium.  It's not like this place was the most friendly environment one day and the next there were major security problems; the Dodgers had let this slide for quite a while.  The Dodgers are not responsible for the criminal acts of others, but they are responsible to provide a safe environment and it won't be hard to show that McCourt had failed to do that for quite some time and this incident was an expected and likely preventalbe eventual consequence of that negligence.

S*** happens; stop suing whoever has the most money whever you get dealt a bad hand.


Isn't the team they are suing having money issues? So saying that they are suing them because they have the most money is asinine. As far as dealing with it, he didnt go to the Dodgers game to be beaten. He went to enjoy a game, such as yourself. The Dodgers have a resposibility to make sure that this stuff does not happen, or is dealt with in a timely manner, on their property. They should be responsible for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Is that 50 million dollars worth. I don't know. But this man went to a GAME for fun and should not be where he is now because some lunatics can't handle seeing an opposin fan.

I hope the Stow family takes the Dodgers to the cleaners. This savage act is an embarrasment to the legendary Dodgers franchise. The beating the Mr. Stow took is symbolic of what the McCourts ownership of the team has been like. McCourt is a joke of an owner. I hope that the criminals responsible for this are thrown in prison. I'm embarrased that one of those punks was Latino. It's punks like him that give a bad rep to good hardworking Latinos like me. Those @ssholes ruined Dodger games for a lot of other Latinos. A lot of ignorant people are going to think that any Latino at a Dodger is up to no good.
