Jury In Stow Civil Trial Will Resume Deliberations Monday
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) – After six days of deliberations, the jury has no verdict in the Bryan Stow beating civil trial.
The jury, who have put in 25 hours in trying to reach a verdict, will continue to deliberate Monday.
On Wednesday, the jury told the judge it was hopelessly deadlocked.
The attack, after the Los Angeles Dodgers’ home opener in 2011, left former paramedic Bryan Stow severely disabled. It also focused national attention on fan violence at sports venues.
Stow’s family is seeking $37.5 million to cover the cost of lifetime medical care, plus double that amount for pain and suffering.
A lawyer for Stow said in final arguments that the Dodgers and the team’s former owner, Frank McCourt, were negligent in providing adequate security on Opening Day, a time when fan emotions run high.
