The Defendants in the Bryan Stow beating case are continuing their preliminary hearing this week, after three days in court last week. The evidence has so far shown one of the Defendants, Marvin Norwood, talking to his mother on a detective's cellphone, alluding to the fact that he was involved in the brutal beating and that it looked like he was going to be convicted.
The beating of Bryan Stow took place in the Dodgers Stadium parking lot on March 31, 2011. After watching the Giants play the Dodgers, Bryan Stow (a Paramedic from the Bay area) along with his family, left the ballpark and were accosted by two men in the parking lot. Mr. Stow was beaten severely and suffered traumatic injuries to his brain and skull. The suspects fled and the criminal proceedings have been continuing, as seen in the above paragraph.
The Stow family has filed a civil lawsuit against the Dodgers organization and the Dodgers Owner, Frank McCourt, alleging that the Dodger organization was negligent in the amount of security provided to patrons when Mr. Stow was assaulted in the parking lot on Opening Day. Civil proceedings have stalled because the Dodgers organization has been going through bankruptcy proceedings.
