LOS ANGELES -- Trial of a civil suit filed by Dodger Stadium beating victim Bryan Stow has been delayed. The judge who has been overseeing the case told lawyers Tuesday he has been reassigned and a new judge will have to be chosen to preside over the case.
Stow, who suffered devastating brain injuries that left him permanently disabled is suing former Dodgers owner Frank McCourt and three team entities he created. The suit claims negligence in security at the stadium, liability and negligent hiring.
Stow, a paramedic, was beaten in a parking lot after the 2011 opening day game between the Giants and Dodgers in Los Angeles. Two Dodgers fans are awaiting trial on criminal charges in the beating, which sparked outrage and brought stadium security changes around the state and country.
