Dodgers Must Pay $14 Million To Fan Who Was Beaten
Three years after almost being beaten to death, baseball fan Bryan Rowe will get $18 million dollars for the injuries suffered at a Los Angeles Dodgers game, $13.9 million of which will be paid by the Dodgers’ organization, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood, the two men who were convicted of beating Rowe, are responsible for the rest of the money owed to Rowe for his injuries. Norwood was sentenced to four years in prison, Sanchez to eight. Both men have been previously convicted for domestic violence, among other convictions.
Frank McCourt, the Dodgers’ owner during the incident, is not being held liable for allegations that he refused to acknowledge the unsafe conditions of the stadium’s parking lot, where the beating took place.
Bryan Rowe now was brain damage. He is in a wheelchair, must wear a diaper, and has plastic shunts coming out of his skull due to the injuries suffered on Opening Day in 2011 when the Dodgers played the San Francisco Giants.
