Dodger Stadium Beating Suspects to Be Arraigned Friday

Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood are expected in an L.A. Superior Courtroom Friday. That's as attorneys for Bryan Stow ask for $50 million dollars in damages in their civil lawsuit against the Dodgers.

Attorneys for Bryan Stow want more than $50 million for their brain-damaged client to cover future medical costs and pain and suffering stemming from the March 31, 2011, attack, outside Dodger Stadium, court papers show.

Stow has racked up $4.3 million in medical bills so far and will need more than $50 million according to court papers filed Friday.

The Santa Cruz man and his children, Tyler and Tabitha Stow, sued Dodgers owner Frank McCourt and 13 team entities on May 24.

Among the claims are assault, battery, negligence, premises liability, negligent hiring, assault and both intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

The trial of the lawsuit is expected to last about a week, according to Stow's attorneys.

A trial-setting conference is scheduled for June 29.

In a related criminal action, Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood were ordered to stand trial for the beating of Stow.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge George Lomeli found sufficient evidence to require Sanchez, 30, and Norwood, 31, both of Rialto, to proceed to trial on one felony count each of mayhem, assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury and battery with serious bodily injury.

The judge also found enough evidence involving an allegation that Sanchez had personally inflicted great bodily injury against Stow, then 42, but ruled there was insufficient evidence that Norwood had.

Both men remain jailed and are due back at the downtown Los Angeles courthouse for arraignment Friday.
