A San Francisco Giants fan who suffered brain damage in a beating at Dodger Stadium won his negligence suit against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday, but former owner Frank McCourt was absolved by the jury. The jury found that Bryan Stow suffered damages for economic losses and pain and suffering totaling about $18 million but divided responsibility for his injuries among the Dodgers and the two men who beat him. Plaintiff’s attorney Tom Girardi says the verdict means the Dodgers must pay about $14 million in economic losses and a quarter of the pain and suffering sum, adding about $1 million more. – AP
