DEVELOPING: Dodgers Found Partly Liable In Stow Beating


The jury has come back and delivered a verdict in the beating of San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow on Opening Day 2011.

Stow's attorney maintained the Dodgers and then-owner Frank McCourt were liable for having lacked proper security forces at Dodger Stadium should fighting break out between Dodger and Giants fans.

The end result is that McCourt is absolved. The Dodgers are 25-percent to blame and the two men charged in the Stow beating- Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood are responsible for the balance.

The jury awarded Stow $18 million in damages, which means the Dodgers must pay about $4.5 million. Sanchez and Norwood would be responsible for the balance.
