LOS ANGELES (AP) - Jurors have gone home for a long holiday weekend and will resume deliberating Monday in a negligence lawsuit filed by San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stowe, who suffered severe brain damage in a beating at Dodger Stadium.

The jury completed a full day of deliberations Thursday a day after a judge told them to keep talking when they said they couldn't reach a verdict.

The 12-member Los Angeles County Superior Court panel deliberated for nearly a week before telling Judge Victor E. Chavez on Wednesday that it was unable to reach consensus on whether there was negligence by the Dodgers or former owner Frank McCourt.

Stow, a 45-year-old from Northern California, was attacked by two Dodger fans after the 2011 opening game between the Dodgers and San Francisco Giants.
