Dodgers to Sue Bryan Stow Beating Suspects

Attorneys for the Dodgers see this as a way to defend the civil lawsuit filed by Bryan Stow and his children in May.

Attorneys for Frank McCourt and the Los Angeles Dodgers say they plan to pursue a civil action against two men charged in the beating of Bryan Stow.

They filed papers Wednesday as a prelude to filing a cross-complaint against Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood, the two charged with attacking Stow.

Dodger attorneys hope to defend against a civil lawsuit filed by the Giants fan and his family.

Team lawyers don't expect the two to testify in depositions, since it might involve incriminating themselves in the criminal action.

They also say that could hamper their ability "to prepare and present a defense."

Stow and his children, Tyler and Tabitha Stow, filed the suit against 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.
