An attorney for Bryan Stow’s family responded, not so kindly, after the Los Angeles Dodgers’ representation insinuated that the Giants fan was partly to blame for the parking lot beating that left him in a coma.
“How you are judged in life is how you react after mistakes,” Stow attorney Thomas Girardi told the LA Times. “So here it is, let’s blame the innocent guy for the lack of security at Dodger Stadium.”
A lawsuit was filed last week by an attorney representing the Dodgers and owner Frank McCourt against suspects in Stow’s attack. The complaint alleged they are not to blame for the assault on Stow.
“I’ve been doing these cases for 23 years and I have never seen one yet in which it didn’t take at least two people to tango,” McCourt’s attorney Jerome Jackson told ESPN.
Jackson did follow up his comment by saying he was referring to how a civil jury might view the matter, the LA Times reported.
The Stow family is currently suing the Dodgers over the beating that took place during the Dodgers' home opener in March against the San Francisco Giants.
