Man falsely accused of the Bryan Stow beating has his lawsuit dismissed
Back in 2011, aman named Giovanni Ramirez, was arrested in connection with the beating of Bryan Stow outside Dodger Stadium on Opening Day. His face and name was plastered all over the place, but there was just one problem: he didn’t do it. Wasn’t anywhere near the place. He was ultimately exonerated, but it took months, all the while city officials said publicly that he was the man who did it.
Then he sued the city. The suit, however, was not successful:
It’s unclear what the basis was for the dismissal, but it’s worth noting that it’s awfully hard to sue the government in cases like these, so success was never assured.
