A jury has awarded Brian Stow about $18 million for a brutal beating at the hands of Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood in the Dodger Stadium parking lot back on opening day in 2011. Air Jordan 13 For Sale NZ . On March 31, 2011, Stow and some friends went to a Giants-Dodgers game in L.A. Wearing his Giants jersey, Stow was taunted during the game. While leaving the game, he was savagely beaten into unconsciousness by Norwood and Sanchez. He was placed in a medically induced coma for several weeks and a portion of his skull was removed to relieve pressure on his brain. Stow, a Santa Cruz paramedic and the father of two young children, was left with permanent brain damage, unable to work again and will require around the clock care for the rest of his life. The jury found the Dodgers 25 per cent responsible, while Norwood and Sanchez were each found 37.5 per cent responsible. The liability of the Dodgers stems from providing inadequate security at the ballpark. Its been reported that the verdict means that the Dodgers will pay $4.5 million, with Norwood and Sanchez being on the hook for the remaining $13.5 million. Thats not quite accurate. The Dodgers will have to pay the whole amount less $3 million. Under California law (where the trial was held), defendants in personal injury cases are considered "jointly and severally" liable for economic losses. That means that each defendant is ultimately responsible for the entire amount owed to the plaintiff even if he or she is only partly responsible. So if there are three defendants being sued, and two dont have any money, the third has to pick up the tab irrespective of his share of the liability. So that means if the Dodgers were found to be only one per cent liable, the team would still have to pay just about the entire award (some have criticized this legal principle, saying that it unfairly allocates liability). Its important to note, however, that under this legal principle, the Dodgers are only on the hook for Stows economic losses. These are called "special damages" and include things like medical expenses, future medical expenses, loss of earnings and loss of future earnings. On the flip side, the Dodgers are not obligated to pay more than their share of "general damages", which includes pain and suffering and mental anguish. In the Stow case, special damages account for most of the award. According to my math, the jury awarded Stow $14 million in special damages and another $4 million for pain and suffering. So while the Dodgers are only 25 per cent responsible for the $14 million, they pay all of it because Norwood and Sanchez cant pay. On top of that, they only pay $1 million of the $4 million pain and suffering award. So that grand total for the Dodgers is $15 million of the $18 million despite only being 25 per cent responsible. The Dodgers could turn around and sue Norwood and Sanchez, but since they have no money, its probably pointless. By the way, the jury didnt find former Dodger owner Frank McCourt liable. While McCourt was not beloved by Dodger fans or Major League Baseball, that is the right finding. It can be very tough to find an owner responsible in a case like this. Generally, liability will be assigned to the company and not the person running it. McCourt did not assault Stow and should not be liable for his customers engaging in reprehensible behaviour. Its not inappropriate, however, to find a team partly responsible in certain circumstances. Finally, according to this Court Order, Stow has agreed to only seek money from the 17 Dodgers insurance policies and not the team itself. While these insurance policies are unavailable, the Dodgers have said they are worth $300 million. So Stow should get his money. The Court Order was part of a deal to get the Dodgers, who were in bankruptcy court, to agree to move the trial from bankruptcy court in Delaware to a more favourable venue for Stow, namely, a California court. As a result of the incident, Stows life and that of his young family have been forever and irreparably changed. This damage award will help, but of course will never return Stow to any type of normal life. He and his family will always struggle. Air Jordan 13 NZ .m. ET, CBSOPENING LINE — Falcons by 3 1/2RECORD VS. Air Jordan 13 Online Shop NZ . Ibrahimovic put PSG ahead when he got in front of his marker to neatly flick in Lucass cross in the 59th minute. New signing Yohan Cabaye came on as a second-half substitute and headed Ezequiel Lavezzis cross against the post in the 87th. Moments later, Lucas set up another goal from the right when fellow countryman Alex turned in his corner with a strikers finish.The surprising New York Islanders will take aim at their seventh win in nine games when they welcome the Winnipeg Jets for Tuesdays battle at Nassau Coliseum. Viewers in the Jets region can catch all the action tonight starting at 7pm ET/4pm PT on TSN3 or listen on TSN Radio 1290 Winnipeg starting at 5pm CT. The Jets won for the second time in three games after beating the visiting Colorado Avalanche in Sundays overtime battle. Bryan Little was credited with the game-winning goal in OT to help Winnipeg record a 2-1 decision at MTS Centre. Little was positioned in the low slot, where he deflected Andrew Ladds backhander. The puck trickled through Colorado goaltender Semyon Varlamov and across the goal line with 25 seconds remaining. Ladd scored on a redirection in the first period for his 100th goal with the Jets/Thrashers franchise. Ondrej Pavelec made 22 saves as Winnipeg finished its homestand with a 2-3-0 record. I liked the action we had around the net all night from all of our lines, Ladd said. Tuesdays test kicks off a four-game road trip for the Jets, who are 1-2 as the guest this season. Winnipeg forward Evander Kane practiced for the first time Monday since getting injured in the season opener. Although Kane joined the team on its trip, he is not expected to play during the swing. The Jets have lost three of four and six of their last eight games against the Isles overall, but the club has four victories over its past six trips to Long Island. The Islanders are off to a 6-2 start in the franchises final season on Long Island before moving operation to Brooklyn for the 2015-16 campaign. New York didnt win its seventh game last season until earning a victory over Nashville in its 19th tilt on Nov. 12. Jack Capuanos club won its second straight tilt on Satuurday, beating the visiting Dallas Stars by a 7-5 count. Cheap Air Jordan 13 NZ. Frans Nielsens third-period hat trick helped the Islanders win the wild contest at the Coliseum. With the game tied at 4-4 after two periods, Nielsen started his surge as he finished a 2-on-1 rush with a goal at the 9:39 mark. He then received a pass from Mikhail Grabovski on another 2-on-1 break and wristed the puck past Anders Lindback for a 6-4 lead 5 1/2 minutes later. Shawn Horcoff cut the deficit in half when he beat Chad Johnson only 23 seconds after Nielsens second tally, but the native of Denmark capped the night on an empty netter with one-tenth of a second left. Anders Lee, Nikolai Kulemin, Brock Nelson and Lubomir Visnovsky each added a goal for New York, while Johnson made 26 saves in the win for the Metropolitan Division leaders. You get the two points however you win ... but you cant rely on scoring (seven) goals, Johnson said. I want to be better and make some more saves. Although his team hit the net seven times against the Stars, Isles captain John Tavares was held without a point for just the second time this season. Tavares still leads the team with 11 points on three goals and eight assists. New York is 3-1 as the home team this season. After capping a brief two-game homestand tonight, the Isles will embark on a five-game road trip.
