Timeline: The Bryan Stow Case

Around-the-clock care, pain, suffering, lost wages and other calculations are taken into consideration when attorneys put a dollar figure on the event. The statement is part of a lawsuit filed May 24 by Stow and his children against Dodgers owner Frank McCourt and 13 team entities.

The damages figure must be set for for the case to move forward in the courts.

Defense attorneys have challenged some of the lawsuit's claims. Among their arguments: Stow's two children should not be able  to pursue a negligence claim because they were not present when their father was injured.

Stow was at the game with friends, other San Francisco Giants fans, when he was attacked. He has been hospitalized in LA and the Bay Area since the March 31 attack.

A hearing on the team's motions is scheduled for Sept. 30.

Two men have been arrested in the case. A pretrial hearing for Louie Sanchez, 29, and Marvin Norwood, 30, was scheduled for Sept. 30. 

Both men pleaded not guilty. The judge ordered both held in lieu of $500,000 bail.

Stow and his friends had two encounters with their attackers, according to prosecutors. Stow and his friends walked away from the first encounter, but were later attacked at a different location in the parking lot.
