Former owner McCourt testifies in Stow case


LOS ANGELES — Former Dodgers owner Frank McCourt testified in a lawsuit filed over a severe beating at Dodger Stadium that he wasn’t personally involved in security matters at the venue but did suggest a fan code of conduct.

McCourt was only on the witness stand for about an hour in the negligence case filed on behalf of San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow, who suffered brain damage in the beating in a parking lot after the 2011 Opening Day game between the California rivals.

McCourt, who had been questioned by David Lira, an attorney for Stow, in pretrial depositions, appeared prepared for every question and was cautious in his answers, even when asked about his ownership of the Dodgers.
