A trial involving a lawsuit filed in the case of a San Francisco Giants fan who was attacked by two men in the Dodger Stadium parking lot last year was scheduled for early next year.
A judge Friday set a Feb. 5 trial date for Bryan Stow's lawsuit, filed in May. The lawsuit alleges the Dodgers organization was negligent for not having enough security to prevent an attack on him by Dodger fans that left him in a coma for months.
A status conference in the case was scheduled for this fall.
Stow's attorneys contend he should be awarded more than $50 million to cover future medical costs and pain and suffering stemming from the injuries suffered in the March 31, 2011 attack.
As for the criminal case, Louie Sanchez, 30, and Marvin Norwood, 31, both of Rialto, pleaded not guilty in Los Angeles Superior Court to one felony count each of mayhem, assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury and battery with serious bodily injury in connection with the attack on Stow. Sanchez also is accused of inflicting great bodily injury on the off- duty paramedic.
He also is charged with a misdemeanor count of battery involving a run-in with a female Giants fan -- who was sprayed with soda -- and a misdemeanor battery count for allegedly swinging his fist at a young man in another group of Giants fans in the parking lot after the Dodgers-Giants game.
A pretrial hearing in the criminal case is scheduled Tuesday for both men.
