Judge Unlikely To Overturn Ruling Denying Dodgers Discovery Into Other Team Operations

INFIELD SHIFT: Gross, meanwhile, shifted a hearing on MLB's bid to disqualify McCourt's current bankruptcy counsel on conflict-of-interest grounds from that Oct. 31 hearing to a separate session Oct. 12. The Dodgers, in a separate objection yesterday, called that disqualification bid "a blatant tactical maneuver" designed to "cripple" the club in advance of the Oct. 31 hearing. On that score, Gross seemed to concur, saying that he "didn't think very highly of the disqualification motion, to be blunt." The Dodgers are currently represented in the case by Dewey & LeBoeuf and Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor.
