Bryan Stow Lawsuit: It's All Open to the Public And Free

Posted: Updated:
If you're following the news, and chances are if you've taken the time to read this, you should spend sometime in a courthouse.  The ones in Downtown LA are the best, as they're the biggest and have the most action in the region. 

The famed Criminal Courts building on Temple, where OJ was tried, the Bell trial, McMartin, and so many many others, then the County Courthouse up on Hill where on any given day dozens of courtrooms are in action.  Just yesterday at the County Courthouse we had the Sterling case, the Casey Kasem case, and the Bryan Stow versus the Dodgers case, which is what I went back for today.  Mrs. Stow, Bryan's mother said the family was ''very tired'' as they entered court, as you can imagine. They now care for Bryan, 45, a former paramedic, who is brain damaged and essentially helpless in a wheelchair most of the time, requiring 24 hour a day assistance. His insurance is apparently over.  He lives with his family again.  His lawsuit blames the Dodgers for a lack of security on opening day 2011, where he was almost killed in a fight with two men who are now serving state prison time. The Dodgers say Stow and those two were to blame, they'd all been drinking and arguing in the parking lot, and that the team  had a record number of cops and private security on duty that night. 

Today I watched the Dodgers attorney, a Dana Fox, completely shred the plaintiff's expert on ''facilities management'', who claimed in his opinion the Dodgers did not meet industry standards for safety and security that night, that there wasn't proper deployment or training , and if there had been  ''it's more likely than not'' that Stow would not have been injured.   Turns out he wrote  textbook the defense esssentially used to impeach him, in which he wrote , among other things, ''there's no 100 percent safe event. "   It's all great, dramatic theater, but you have to remember it's not TV, real lives are at stake here.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
