According to reports, Stow's family will claim in the lawsuit that it took stadium personnel 15 minutes to respond once they were notified about the attack.

Of course, Stow suffered brain damage at the hands of two attackers -- and is currently listed in critical condition.

Stow's family is not asking for a specific dollar amount in the lawsuit ... but they claim it will take between $45 and $50 MILLION to provide the level of medical care necessary to ensure Stow has a good quality of life.

The suit is expected to be filed sometime today.

But...he was a Giants fan...can't the Dodgers argue that the brain damage was a pre-existing condition?

Not the Dodgers fault. This unfortunately is just the way our society and the justice system, both of which are pathetic, operate.

Good, I live in LA and what happened to Stowe would never have happened if the dogers had real ownership. Also,move the stadium from that dumpy place. People are tired of going into the crime infested ghetto to go see a baseball game, just like the colosieum

OH SCOFFS... They should be suing two attackers who beat that man that left him for dead but instead Los Angeles Dodgers? Come on! Los Angeles Dodgers aint that responsible for the attack but these attackers is the ones who is responsible for that attack occurred.

Wow what a bunch of crap. The greedy nerve of some people. How nice that their "loved one" suffers through that and all they can see is dollar signs for themselves. The only reason these low-lives need 50 million is so THEY can have a good quality of life. The Dodgers could pay for his care for the rest of his life and it wouldn't come close to that amount. Not that they should have to unless the owners or a player beat the crap out of the guy.

Yes. And what took them so long? If a person isn't safe at a ballpark while cheering for their team, in a crowd - then where can anyone be safe?

It is the Dodgers fault. For years they have allowed this intimidation of opposing fans to go unpunished. Just now, they are increasing the security to prevent this from happening. I hope these people get every penny they are asking for.

Absolutely 100% the Dodgers fault.

The Dodgers cater to gang bangers, feeds them alcohol and then sets these gang bangers free to terrorize innocent victims.

Hope the family gets double what they are seeking.

Thats a huge amount. Though It is sick how expensive medical bills are. The most important thing in a persons life and something that should be the first thing for the government to make affordable for citizens. Man, you can go broke in a month if you want to take proper care of a invalid person (nothing extravagant or fancy). Everything is so scr*wed up today.

This wasn't a random event, it was a foreseen consequence of the McCourt's penny pinching on security at Dodger's Stadium. The stadium has become a hangout for gang members. There wasn't adequate lighting and security in the parking lots and this was the inevitable result. Hopefully this is the straw that breaks the McCourt's back and forces them to sell the team.

Good... and they deserve every penny. My family and others we know stopped going to Dodger games a few years back given the lack of qualified security. It's like going to a Raiders game back when they were in LA. You can keep the Dodgers, we're out...
