The attack after an April 2011 opening day game left Bryan Stow in need of life-time care and outraged sports fans
Lawyers for the Dodgers and former owner Frank McCourt argued beating victim Bryan Stow was aggressive, intoxicated prior to incident. Patrick Healy reports live from downtown LA for the NBC4 News at Noon on Thursday, May 29, 2014.
Opening statements began Thursday in a civil lawsuit brought against the Los Angeles Dodgers and former owner Frank McCourt by a San Francisco Giants fan who was attacked in a stadium parking lot after an opening day game.
During opening statements, a lawyer for the Dodgers and McCourt aggressively argued that it was intoxication and flared tempers that caused the fight, and that the team provided adequate security at the stadium.

Well being a lawyer I guess he has to say it ...
Kicking Stow in the head after he was down AND UNCONSCIOUS is all one needs to know about these thugs.
cognitive dissonance much???
The perps have already been caught and sentenced.......any law suit should be against them, not the Dodgers........
The sentences were more cowardly than the original assault. 8 years for one and 4 for the other. Bryan Stow got life without parole, trapped in a paralyzed body with his brain severely damaged. Both of them should have gotten life.
If Stow was so intoxicated, why didn't the police in the stadium arrest him for public drunkeness? Or at least detail a cop to follow him to his car and arrest him when he tried to drive?
There just plain wasn't enough security for the event.
So exactly how much security is enough? Is there a sporting stadium handbook that clearly defines proper security?
Any time someone is assaulted in the parking lot, there was not enough security...
How much money did the ball club make from that event? How much would it cost to rent a few more cops for security for that night?
