On Opening Day in 2011, a horrific incident occurred in which Bryan Stow was beaten in a Dodger Stadium parking lot. Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood were charged for the beating and Stow would spend the next two years in hospitals and rehab centers.
The Dodgers and former owner Frank McCourt were accused of not having proper security or lighting the night Stow was attacked. Sanchez, Norwood and the Dodgers were found negligent Wednesday, but McCourt was acquitted of the charges.
As a result of the jury’s decision, the Dodgers are responsible for paying a portion of the $18 million awarded to Stow and the two attackers are liable for the remaining amount.
