Jury Finds Dodgers Negligent in Giants Fan's Beating

A California jury  found the Los Angeles Dodgers negligent in a civil lawsuit related to the beating of San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow following a 2011 baseball game.

The same jury did not find the Dodgers then-owner, Frank McCourt, negligent in the case, said CNN.

Earlier this year, two California men pleaded guilty for their roles in Stow's beating. Marvin Norwood and Louie Sanchez were sentenced to four years and eight years, respectively.

This verdict was in a civil case, said CNN.

The jury found the Dodgers organization 25% responsible for Stow's injuries, CNN said, while Sanchez and Norwood were each found 37.5% responsible. It is not yet clear whether there will be an appeal.

The lawsuit sought a total of $50 million to cover Stow's medical costs for him and his two children.

The lawsuit contends the Dodgers and former owner Frank McCourt did not provide enough lighting and security in the stadium parking lot the night Stow was beaten, CNN said. Lawyers for the Dodgers and McCourt argued that their clients acted reasonably, and that Stow was intoxicated and aggressive before the assault.

Data centers are increasingly becoming the center of the enterprise, and data center and cyber security is following the same path for security departments. According to Justin Flynn, a consultant at the Burwood Group, the virtualization of data centers allows enterprises to scale more easily and faster, with a smaller footprint.

However, hosting enterprise data in the cloud can make intrusion detection more difficult – how can enterprise security leaders team up with other departments to keep aware of cyber risks and traffic, and physical and data compliance during the virtual transition? How can CISOs and CSOs discuss cyber threats with the C-Suite to get the resources they need? And how can the proper infrastructure test and verify possible malicious attacks?
