As the wheels of justice grind slowly in the case of Bryan Stow's beating, his family is bringing its own case: CSN Bay Area reports that Stow's family will sue the Los Angeles Dodgers for exposing him to "criminal acts" for the team's role in a March incident that left Stow in a coma.
Attorney Thomas V. Girardi is representing the Stow family in the suit that is expected to be filed before noon Tuesday. The lawsuit will reportedly test the Dodgers’ liability for the attack, stating that it took 15 minutes for stadium personnel to respond when they were notified of the beating.
In April, the Dodgers and Giants issued a joint statement on Stow's beating that included the statements "This attack is unconscionable behavior that will not be tolerated in either of our ballparks or in either of our cities" and "Public safety is the top priority for all of us and even one act of random violence is unacceptable."
Stow's family's lawsuit is not for a specified amount, but states that it will cost $45 to $50 million to provide for Stow's quality of life.
