A judge refused to drop Detroit outfielder Eric Davis from a lawsuit filed against him and Kansas City outfielder Vince Coleman by victims of the incident at Dodger Stadium last July in which Coleman, then with the New York Mets, threw an explosive device into a crowd. Davis, then with the Dodgers, was driving the vehicle in which Coleman was riding. Superior Court Judge Stephen Lachs did not dismiss allegations that Davis had disregard for the safety of others and that he intended harm. "Our system is such that we ask you to sue somebody and then find out what happened," the judge said in refusing to dismiss the allegations. Davis' attorney, Kevin Stack, said his client did not intend harm.
