Jurors go home for day in stadium beating case
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jurors have gone home for the day after a judge told the deadlocked panel to keep deliberating in a negligence lawsuit filed by a San Francisco Giants fan over a severe beating at Dodger Stadium.
The panel deliberated for about another hour Wednesday after telling the judge they were deadlocked.
They will return to court on Thursday in the case filed by Bryan Stow against the Dodgers and former owner Frank McCourt.
Deliberations began on June 26.
Stow suffered brain damage when he was attacked in a stadium parking lot after the 2011 opening day game. Two Dodger fans pleaded guilty to criminal charges and remain in jail.
Lawyers for Stow say the Dodgers didn’t have enough security.
The defense says there was more security than ever at an opening day contest, and Stow was partly responsible because he was drunk.
