LOS ANGELES (AP) - A lawyer for a San Francisco Giants fan who was attacked at Dodger Stadium plans to call former Dodgers owner Frank McCourt as a witness in a negligence lawsuit against the team and McCourt.
However, McCourt's stay on the witness stand could be brief Friday if a judge limits issues allowed in the questioning.
Attorney Tom Girardi, who represents beating victim Bryan Stow, wants to question McCourt about team finances and to suggest that McCourt skimped on spending for security at the stadium while lavishing millions of dollars on his own lifestyle.
Stow suffered severe brain damage after being beaten by two Dodgers fans.
Testimony thus far has focused on the contention that there was insufficient security to protect fans at the game. The defense says there was more security than at any other Dodgers opening day.
