behind the dodgers at $2.1 billion. balmer has ties to the seattle area, which has raised questions as to whether he would try and move the clippers. he has said he plans to keep that team in los angeles. of course, this is all tentative and needs the sterlings to sign off on it. and that's where it gets complicated. shelly sterling was given the green light to negotiate a deal. but donald sterling has been flip-flopping. now, at first, he appeared to dig in. he wasn't going to sell. then he had a change of heart. and that changed again this week when sterling promised to quote fight to the bloody end to keep the team. now, the sterlings certainly have plenty of suters to choose from. espn had been reporting a potential super group of owners might be in the works, one led by music mogul david geffen, oracle ceo larry ellison and oprah winfrey. and the group also apparently includes two guggenheim executives. now, if the deal with steve balmer moves forward, it would need the approval of the owners
6:01 pm
of the other 29 nba teams. three-fourths of them would have to vote yes. but you can bet elizabeth that would be a slam-dunk. balmer is worth $20 billion. >> yeah. i was going to say, dennis, money talks. i know the sterlings are holding on for dear life but it will be very interesting to see what they'll say to this. thank you. bryan stow's mother was the first witness to take the stand in his beating lawsuit. stow's family is suing the l.a. dodgers claiming a lack of security. but reporter randy paige says defense lawyers made it clear, they plan to put part of the blame on stow himself. >> reporter: brian was not with his family this morning. his presence here on tuesday and wednesday during jury selection took its toll according to the family and the brain injured former paramedics needed a day of rest. inside the jury listened as both sides offered their opening statements. bryan stow's lead attorney thomas girardi told the jury the two men who would later
6:02 pm
assault bryan stow were assaulting giants fans as early as the second inning. all of this harassment foul language, yelling and screaming throwing stuff assaulting people, there was no security there, girardi told the jury. girardi said there were still no security personnel in sight when bryan stow was attacked by louis sanchez and marvin norwood after the game. it wasn't a fight, girardi said, when you walk out of the stadium and you're smashed in the back, that isn't a fight. that's an assault. and if they, the dodgers, had done what they were supposed to do when in the preceding three hours the assault never would have happened. girardi told the jury that frank mccourt and the dodger are responsible. but the defense says we claim the injuries are caused solely by the conduct of mr. sanchez, mr. norwood and mr. stow. fox said bryan stow was also being aggressive while watching the game and after the game, fox said, stow directed a
6:03 pm
comment towards sanchez which prompted a shove and later the attack. mr. stow was injured, fox told the jury, as a result of a testosterone and alcohol-fueled flash firefight that occurred in parking lot 2 that night. you're going to hear this happened in a matter of second and that the large amount of alcohol consumed by mr. stow played a role in this. and while stow's attorneys claim there were no security personnel in sight, the defense told the jury the dodgers spent more on security for the game than any other opening day in dodger history. the first witness to be called to the stand by the plaintiffs bryan stow's mother elizabeth. she provided some emotional testimony saying she was by her son's bedside for months while he was in a coma. she testified his first sound issued 8 months after the beating was a sob. but she said there have been improvements. that he is now able to go to see a movie once or twice a week, able to take a few steps with his walker. but she said he is still unable to use the restroom by himself and can't tie his shoes.

6:06 pm
rejection and unfulfilled desires. >> does the family themselves feel a sense of responsibility? >> inwardly think we must do when something like this happens. but i think where they can be at peace with all this and it's the truth is that since he was 9 years old, they have tried to help him. they are mourning more for the innocence that didn't return on friday night than the life of their son. >> reporter: last months, the shooter's mother alerted the santa barbara sheriff her son may be a danger. the deputies determined there was no reason for concern. >> do they blame the sheriff's department for not being more aggressive? >> no blame. i haven't heard one word of blame. elliot fooled everyone for a very, very long time. and, you know, ultimately, that's what he did with the police. >> reporter: cate caugiran, kpix 5. >> astaire says rodger's parents spent years trying to manage their son's mental illness. tonight more than 1,000

[ noise ] >> reporter: yes, the actually elk which were introduced to a reserve on tomales point in the late '70s. since then they have spread beyond the preserve and across the park. at first it was just the wilderness area. but now, they are roaming, eating and making baby elk in

6:34 pm
asked yet. >> reporter: the camera work is a little rough at times and it can be confusing when candidates respond to questions that are not included in the videos. but project workers hope the idea of a neutral site with thoughtful answers can shed some light in a heated campaign. >> so ultimately, temperature we continue to move in this direction, and the momentum continues, the community will just revolt and say, they are going negative. what do they have to hide? >> reporter: at the college of marin, john ramos, kpix 5. >> electmarin.org has already had 1700 viewers in just a couple of weeks. the plan is to expand the program to other colleges across the state just in time for the november general election. the bay area girl who made it to the national spelling bee is now out. neha konakalla was still standing until late this afternoon. the 14-year-old is from sam lawson middle school in cupertino. she was tripped up by the word
