    Two families who had loved one injured following professional sporting events in Los Angeles filed lawsuits Tuesday.

    First came news that the family of Bryan Stow will sue the Dodgers following a vicious attack in the parking lot following a game against the Giants.  The lawsuit, according to the report, will try to prove the Dodgers are responsible for "exposing Stow to criminal acts of third parties."  Stow has been in a coma ever since the March 31 attack.

    Also Tuesday, a second unrelated lawsuit was filed in connection with the death of a 2-year-old boy who fell from a third-level box during a Lakers Warriors game.

    The lawsuit alleges that Anschutz Entertainment Group and Staples Center operator L.A. Arena Co. failed to warn fans about what the lawsuit calls a dangerous design of the luxury boxes, according to the Associated Press. The lawsuit was filed by the boy's family in LA Superior Court.

    The boy, Lucas Tang, suffered head injuries in the fall. He landed on a row of seats after a game in November between the Lakers and Golden State Warriors.

    The filing seeks unspecified damages and an injunction that would require Anschutz to install taller barriers in front of the boxes, the AP reported.
