Tom Girardi Represents Victim in Dodgers Lawsuit
Paramedic Bryan Stow was beaten senseless in a parking lot after the March 31, 2011, Dodgers opening game, an attack that left him paralyzed. California attorney Thomas V. Girardi took up Bryan Stow's case. In 2014, Girardi appeared in California Superior Court in Los Angeles before Judge Victor E. Chavez and argued successfully that the Dodgers neglected to provide security sufficient to protect Stow. The jury awarded Stow eighteen million dollars in damages from Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood—the fans who had beaten him—as well as the Dodgers organization. Sanchez and Norwood were charged in both state and Federal courts and received prison sentences for their roles in the attack on Stow.
