LOS ANGELES (AP) - The family of a San Francisco Giants fan who was brutally beaten at Dodger Stadium in March has sued the team and its troubled owner Frank McCourt, claiming inadequate security was partially to blame for the attack.
The suit filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court on behalf of 42-year-old paramedic Bryan Stow contends the Dodgers were negligent by not providing more security.
The suit claims the stadium has more crime than any other Major League Baseball venue.
Stow remains in critical but stable condition under heavy sedation to prevent seizures caused by the traumatic brain injury he suffered in the March 31 attack. Police arrested a man Sunday but charges have not yet been filed.
A spokesman for McCourt did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
