The Bryan Stow jury is deadlocked

16 Comments

Closing arguments were given in the Bryan Stow-Dodgers civil case last week, and it has been in the jury’s hands for five days. But they’ve decided absolutely nothing on those five days. From Courthouse News Service:

The Los Angeles Superior Court Information Office said in a statement Wednesday:

“The jurors in the matter of Bryan Stow v. L.A. Dodgers have announced that they are having difficulty reaching a verdict. They were instructed to return to the jury room and continue deliberations.”

The case is in its fifth day of deliberations. The jury has yet to answer a single question on the verdict form, Los Angeles City News Service reported Wednesday.

The first question on the jury form is whether or not the Dodgers are liable. If they can’t get nine of 12 jurors to answer “yes” to that, then the case is over and Stow does not recover. If they can’t reach any decision whatsoever and remain deadlocked, a mistrial could be declared.

Brian Dozier’s shot to center got stuck in the wall at Target Field

You don’t see this every day …

Twins second baseman Brian Dozier hit a blast to dead-center field in the first inning of Wednesday afternoon’s game against the Tigers and it neither cleared the fence, nor banged off the fence, nor dropped in front of it.

Instead, the ball found a comfortable home inside the wall …

This isn’t the first wall-sticker for Dozier. He put a ball in the bullpen fence in Washington during an exhibition game against the Nationals back in 2016.
