LOS ANGELES (AP) — An attorney for Brian Stow, the gravely injured Giants fan who won a multimillion-dollar damage suit against the Dodgers, has sued the team again, claiming it is trying to recoup $3.4 million in insurance payments from Stow for his medical care after a beating.
Attorney Tom Girardi said in the lawsuit filed Monday in Los Angeles that the Dodgers and its insurer want the money returned from the $18 million awarded to Stow this summer by a jury.
Stow suffered a traumatic brain injury after being beaten by two Dodger fans in a parking lot of Dodger Stadium on March 31, 2011. Doctors have testified he will require treatment for the rest of his life.
Jerome Jackson, a lawyer for the Dodgers, did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
