—Chavez Ravine: A Dodger Stadium patron has sued the team over injuries he alleges he suffered after being attacked by fans and security officers in a parking lot after a game in 2022. Donald Williams' Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit alleges negligence, premises liability, negligent hiring, retention and supervision, intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress, assault battery, and false imprisonment. Williams seeks unspecified damages in the suit brought Friday. A Dodger spokesman said the team does not comment on pending litigation. Williams attended a game last July 26th between the Dodgers and Washington Nationals with a nearly sellout crowd present, the suit states. The Nationals broke open what had been a one-run game since the first inning with four runs in the ninth inning in an 8-3 victory, causing many Dodger fans to become "upset and unruly," the suit states.

—DTLA: A judge has ruled a Los Angeles police homicide detective who sued the city, alleging she was unfairly criticized for such issues as the way she dressed and how much socializing she did at her desk, can take her case to trial. ...

—DTLA: A judge is expected to rule today on a defense bid for a new trial for jailed rapper Tory Lanez who was found guilty of shooting hip-hop star Megan Thee Stallion in the feet three years ago. Lanez's current attorney, Jose Baez -- who famously won an acquittal for Casey Anthony -- argued Monday that procedural errors, prosecutorial misconduct, discovery violations and ineffective counsel led to his client's conviction. During an often contentious hours-long hearing, Baez asked for frequent recesses and complained of the order in which the judge took up the defense claims of trial error. Superior Court Judge David Herriford repeatedly told Baez that a motions hearing was not an opportunity to "relitigate this case." [City News Services]
