Bryan Stow, escorted by his neurosurgeon Dr. Gabriel Zada and medical staff, is taken from Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center to Bob Hope Airport for a trip to San Francisco General Hospital last year.

Bryan Stow's $50 million lawsuit against former Dodgers owner Frank McCourt will go to trial early next year. A judge Friday set a courtdate for February 5, 2013, City News Service reports.

Stow, a San Francisco Giants fan from Santa Cruz, suffered brain damage after being brutally beaten in the parking lot of Dodger Stadium after Opening Day, 2011. Stow's lawyers say he'll need lifelong medical care.

Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood, the two men accused in the beating, will be in court on Tuesday for a pretrial hearing. They've both pleaded not guilty to assault, battery, and mayhem charges.
