Judge Indicates He Will Not Overturn Ruling On Dodgers Evidence
Embattled Dodgers Owner Frank McCourt is facing another likely legal defeat after Judge Kevin Gross of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court District of Delaware signaled strongly yesterday he would not overturn a prior ruling of his forbidding discovery into other MLB team operations. McCourt sought the discovery, particularly with regard to other RSN TV deals, arguing he could not prove improper MLB animus against him without it. But following a two-hour telephonic hearing yesterday on the discovery issue, Gross said he likely will not change course. A formal ruling is expected as soon as today.
