McCourt's Divorce Trial Could Impact Dodgers' Future
Frank and Jamie McCourt’s divorce trial is officially underway and all eyes are on the courtroom, where the future of one of baseball’s most treasured franchises hangs in the balance. Determining who owns the Dodgers likely hinges on the couple’s much-disputed marital property agreement, and, as expected, both sides’ lawyers take little time going on the offensive in their opening statements. Jamie’s side claims the documents were tampered with and she would never agree to forfeit ownership of the Dodgers. Meanwhile, Frank’s attorney states Jamie saw the purchase of the team as a risky proposition and argues she changed her mind only after concluding a stake in the club could help her political ambitions. The fireworks are expected to continue, with Frank taking the stand as soon as today and Jamie possibly testifying tomorrow.
