Home / National News / Jury Finds Los Angeles Dodgers Negligent in 2011 Beating at Dodger Stadium


(LOS ANGELES) — A jury found in favor of the baseball fan who was beaten outside of Dodger Stadium in 2011, awarding him $18 million in the civil verdict.

Bryan Stow, a San Francisco Giants fan, was beaten outside of Dodger Stadium following a game between the Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2011. Earlier this year, Louie Sanchez, 31, and Marvin Norwood, 33, agreed to plead guilty to beating Stow following the March 31, 2011 game.

Sanchez knocked Stow unconscious, without provocation, causing Stow to suffer severe brain trauma. Stow’s attorneys claimed that the team failed to provide adequate security on the day he was attacked.

While the judge found the Dodgers, under former ownership, will have to pay the majority of the $18 million award — about $14 million. Former Dodgers owner Frank McCourt was not found to be liable, however.
