Dodgers Denied Ability To Take Legal Discovery Against Other Teams
Published October 10, 2011
BLOW TO MCCOURT: The re-confirmed decision Friday represents another significant blow to McCourt, who wanted the other data to more clearly show an alleged pattern of abuse by Commissioner Bud Selig against the Dodgers. But Gross did leave the club a sliver of hope in the decision, saying that should MLB fail to show how the Dodgers have violated league agreements, as the league claims, he may allow "further, limited discovery." MLB is citing numerous violations of league agreements as grounds for its recent motion to expel McCourt from the league and have the team sold. But with Gross more specifically shifting the burden of proof to the league, the Dodgers will continue to argue that they have a plan to exit bankruptcy that is being wrongly blocked by the league.
