    Lawyers for Frank McCourt, owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, is trying to lessen the impact of a lawsuit filed by the family of brutally beaten Giants fan Bryan Stow.

    The Los Angeles Dodgers and team owner Frank McCourt are not taking the Bryan Stow assault lawsuit sitting down.

    Attorneys for the team and its embattled owner -- whose lavish lifestyle contributed to the brutal March 30 beating of Stow in the Dodger Stadium parking lot, the lawsuit alleges -- are working to remove certain words and phrasings from the suit in order to lessen its impact, according to the San Francisco Examiner.

    The family's lawyers say that the Santa Cruz County paramedic's children "will suffer severe loss" without an able-bodied father. The suit mentions "free-flowing beer" at the stadium and the attack as "brutal and vicious."

    McCourt's lawyers want the mention of beer as well as the description of the attack removed.

    Three arrests have been made in the beating of Stow, 42, who has been in a coma for more than four months. Los Angeles police arrested and released 31-year old Giovanni Ramirez before arresting Marvin Norwood, 30, and Louie Sanchez, 29, in San Bernadino County.
