Former Dodgers owner testifies in fan beating case

AP - Sports

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Former Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt has begun testifying in a lawsuit against him and the team resulting from the devastating beating of a San Francisco Giants fan at Dodger Stadium in 2011.

A lawyer for victim Bryan Stow asked McCourt on Friday whether he had hands-on involvement in security matters.

McCourt said he did not.

McCourt did acknowledge making public statements saying that a quality and safe fan experience is a core value of the Dodgers.

He testified that he suggested the drafting of a fan code of conduct, which was adopted.

Stow suffered severe brain damage in the beating by two Dodgers fans who pleaded guilty to criminal charges. The attack occurred in a parking lot after an Opening Day game between the California rivals.
