SAN FRANCISCO -- San Francisco General Hospital is seeking $1.2 million in unpaid medical bills from the bankrupt owners of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Stow, a 43-year-old paramedic from Live Oak, was beaten after a Giants-Dodgers game in Los Angeles in March 2011. He had a severe brain injury and was treated at San Francisco General. Rachael Kagan, a spokeswoman for the hospital, said Monday that the hospital wants to recoup $1.2 million in Stow's medical expenses.
It is routine for the hospital to transfer unpaid debts to the San Francisco Bureau of Delinquent Revenue, Kagan said. Because Dodgers' owner Frank McCourt has filed for bankruptcy, the bureau named itself as a creditor.
Stow's family sued McCourt and the Dodgers in 2011 for security and maintenance problems at Dodger Stadium that contributed to the extent of the attack. ___
