LOS ANGELES (AP) Opening statements are expected to begin in a lawsuit brought by beating victim Bryan Stow against the Los Angeles Dodgers and its former owner, Frank McCourt.
The civil negligence case is set to start in a Los Angeles court on Thursday.
A jury was selected Wednesday after lawyers spent all day questioning prospects after reading through their answers to a six-page written questionnaire.
Stow, the San Francisco Giants fan whose beating at Dodgers Stadium became a symbol of violence associated with sports events, sat in court in a specially equipped wheelchair as prospective jurors were questioned. Two men pleaded guilty to assaulting him.
The civil jury will decide whether the Dodgers and McCourt provided sufficient security on April 2011 for the opening game with Los Angeles' fierce rival, the San Francisco Giants.
Stow suffered brain damage and is permanently disabled.
