Jury Selection set to begin in Bryan Stow lawsuit against Frank McCourt
Jury selection is set to begin today in a civil lawsuit filed by Bryan Stow against former Dodgers owner Frank McCourt. KABC’s Jim Roope reports Stow received a traumatic brain injury after being beaten in the stadium parking lot on open day 20-11. Were the Dodgers, under the management of McCourt, negligent in not providing enough security to prevent the fight that left Stow not only with the traumatic brain injury, but permanently disabled? The lawsuit claims that Dodgers Stadium has had more criminal activity than any other stadium. It also alleges that the McCourt’s lavish lifestyle resulted in the Frank McCourt dramatically reducing security at the stadium. The suit claims it will take 50-million dollars to care for Stow over his lifetime. The suit is seeking at least that much. Original story appeared on kabc.com, May 28, 2014.
