From "Bryan Stow family suing Dodgers" by Ramona Shelburne at ESPNLosAngeles.com:
The family of San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow, who was brutally beaten in the parking lot at Dodger Stadium on Opening Day, filed a civil suit against the Dodgers in Los Angeles Superior Court Tuesday morning.
The suit seeks unspecified damages to cover Stow's future medical care and as compensation for the economic damages to Stow and his two children.
"It's fairly simple," said Thomas Girardi, the attorney representing the family. "The Dodgers have shown a total disregard for public safety. They've gotten rid of security people. They've had all these incidents at their games, more than other teams. There's also a known gang presence. What did they think was going to happen?"
Girardi said that the family insisted on repaying much of the money that has been raised for the Bryan Stow Fund since the attack, except for a scholarship for Stow's children that was donated by Giants slugger Barry Bonds because it "means so much to them."
This lawsuit seemed inevitable, and although it's the family's right to do what they will with — or without — the money raised for Bryan Stow, I hope they repaid it for legal reasons only.
