Bryan Stow and Family Sue LA Dodgers & Frank McCourt

The family of Bryan Stow, the San Francisco Giants fan left with brain damage after a brutal attack outside Dodger stadium, has sued the Los Angeles Dodgers, team owner Frank McCourt Jr., and a host of business entities affiliated with the Dodgers and Dodger stadium.

The complaint alleges that Dodger stadium experiences more criminal behavior than any venue in major league baseball, and that despite knowledge of this and knowledge of the heated rivalry between the Dodgers and Giants, the Dodgers organization cut back in security at the stadium and allowed facilities like the parking lot to lapse into disrepair. The plaintiffs claim that by failing to provide adequate security and proper lighting, the Dodgers caused the circumstances in which Stow's attackers targeted him, and in which stadium personnel took 10 to 15 minutes to respond.
