The family of injured Giants fan Bryan Stow can now move forward with a lawsuit against the Los Angeles Dodgers. A bankruptcy judge says Stow's family can proceed with their negligence lawsuit once the Dodgers come out of bankruptcy, which could be as soon as next month.

Stow suffered severe head trauma after he was beaten in the parking lot of Dodger Stadium in March of last year. Stow was recently transferred out of Santa Clara Valley Medical Center and moved to another facility to get aggressive therapy.

Stow's family sued the team and its owner for failing to provide adequate security.
