In 2014, Girardi | Keese attorneys Tom Girardi, Christopher T. Aumais, and Nicole DeVanon won a multimillion-dollar jury award for their client, Bryan Stow, after two fans severely beat him at Dodger Stadium. The jury agreed with Girardi | Keese that the Dodgers should not have cut back on security at Dodger Stadium; had they not, Stow likely would not have been so seriously and permanently injured.
In the next Dodger Stadium case, the security itself was the problem.
On Nov. 15, Girardi | Keese attorneys Christopher T. Aumais and Ashkahn Mohamadi won a $475,000 jury verdict for their client, Leonard Romo, who was injured by security guards during a game against the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2009.
After Romo’s daughter was asked by security to turn her T-shirt inside out (security asserted that the language on her T-shirt was offensive), words were exchanged, and security guards overreacted by tackling, cuffing, and pulling Romo across the ground.
Romo has not been able to work since the incident.
Girardi | Keese is the nation’s MVP on stadium injury cases.
