The Giants aren’t winning many games on the field these days, but maybe they’ll have better luck in a courtroom.

San Francisco Giants Enterprises, the entity that operates AT&T Park, is being sued by a woman who claims she was injured by a ballpark employee who was driving around in a motorized cart during a Beyoncé and Jay Z tour stop in 2014, according to TMZ. Live Nation is also named in the lawsuit because the cart driver apparently worked for the concert promoter for the On the Run tour.

Sateja Parulekar says she was seriously injured in the collision and is demanding unspecified damages, but Giants Enterprises did not comment to TMZ. That’s the meat of the story so far.

No doubt many locals will remember the On the Run tour — not because they love the powerhouse music couple, but because it might have been the loudest concert ever held in San Francisco. Some reports claimed people could hear the show from miles away

Giants Enterprises is no stranger to legal action, either. The company has been sued at least twice, according to San Francisco Superior Court records.

In one case in 2005, the plaintiff claimed she was injured after falling down outside the ballpark when she walked over excessively slippery tiles on the sidewalk. A few years later, during a concert for to a volleyball tournament, a woman claimed a Boston terrier named Otis — that was owned by a member of the band Rebelution — attacked her backstage, unprovoked. She had been graciously invited into a VIP section and was trying to pet Otis before he went apeshit on her.

Both cases were eventually settled for undisclosed sums.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
