I think its horrible what has been done to this man, and I know he and his children will need a lot of money to pay for the lifetime medical care he will need (assuming he lives) but the stadium and owner are not responsible for men acting like animals and causing this.

It sounds like the family definitely has a case.

I am now looking news stories about the incident. That is just awful; I can't beleive they way some people treat others, especially at sporting events...it's a GAME people!

I couldn't agree with you any more. If it had happened on a city street would they have sued the city for lack of police intervention? Everyone wants to blame someone as long as they have money to sue for. How about blaming the people who beet him?

The parking lot is still part of the stadium property. If the stadium does not have proper security for a fan of a rival team to walk through unassaulted then the family has a viable case IMHO.

I don't generally approve of lawsuits but this is one that seems like it has basis and need .

So if I walk thru the mall parking lot and get mugged by thugs I can sue the mall? Or if I walk down a city street I can sue the city? I don't see how the mall or city should be responsible for thugs being thugs and committing a crime. Hmmm if my house gets robbed maybe I can sue the city for allowing that too...

IMO it would make more sense for me to sue their Mamas for not raising them to be decent human beings!
