Dodgers ask court to throw out Stow damage claim

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) -- The Los Angeles Dodgers have asked a U.S. Bankruptcy Judge to disallow claims against the team filed by Bryan Stow, the San Francisco Giants fan nearly beaten to death outside Dodger Stadium last spring.

Stow and his family sued the Dodgers in California state court, then filed the claim with the federal court in July, weeks after owner Frank McCourt put the team in bankruptcy.

The Dodgers filed a motion with the bankruptcy court Friday and said "Stow cannot prove any link between the additional security related steps that Stow contends the debtors should have taken and his injuries."
