Giants Fan Gets $18M for Beating

A jury has ruled that the Los Angeles Dodgers, along with fans Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood, owe San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow $18 million for a beating in 2011 that left him with significant brain damage. The Dodgers were accused of being ill-equipped to handle massive crowds, and that the team was partly to blame for the beating three years ago because of bad security and poor lighting. It will pay $13.9 million out of the settlement. “I couldn’t believe it,” Ann Stow, Bryan’s mother, said. “It was like a big weight off of our shoulders. We waited three years to hear that, and it’s finally over.” Former Dodgers owner Frank McCourt was found not liable for the attack.
