Lawyers: Giants fan's medical costs to top $50M

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Lawyers for the San Francisco Giants fan who was brutally beaten outside Dodger Stadium say his medical care is expected to cost more than $50 million.

City News Service reports the figure was part of a damage estimate included in papers filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court.

The filings come in a lawsuit Stow and his children have brought against Dodgers owner Frank McCourt and 13 others in the baseball team's organization.

Stow, a paramedic from Santa Cruz, suffered a traumatic brain injury when he was attacked March 31 following the Dodgers' home opener against the Giants in Los Angeles.

Two men have been charged in the attack, and both pleaded not guilty last month.

Stow remains in a coma at a San Francisco hospital.
