Jurors go home for weekend in Giants fan beating
July 04, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Jurors who deadlocked over whether to find the Dodgers negligent in the savage beating of a Giants fan failed to reach a verdict again Thursday and must return to work on Monday after a long holiday weekend.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Victor E. Chavez ordered the panel to keep talking on Wednesday after being told that the panel couldn’t get at least nine of its 12 members to agree.

Bryan Stow, a 45-year-old former paramedic from Northern California, is suing the Dodgers and former owner Frank McCourt, contending there was inadequate security during the 2011 opening game where he was injured.

Stow suffered severe brain damage when he was attacked in the parking lot of Dodger Stadium after the game with the San Francisco Giants.

Stow was knocked down from behind, hit his head on the pavement and then was kicked in the head.

Dodger fans Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood pleaded guilty in the attack.

Medical experts testified that Stow will never work again and has suffered repeated strokes and seizures. They said he will always require around-the-clock care.

The lawsuit seeks $37.5 million for Stow’s lifetime care and compensation for lost earnings.

Stow attorney Tom Girardi has urged jurors to award double that figure for pain and suffering.

Dana Fox, the lawyer for the Dodgers and McCourt, argued that security was stronger than ever at an opening day contest and that the team and McCourt bore no responsibility for the attack.

Fox has told jurors that Stow was drunk and partially responsible for the attack.
