Lawyer Says He Switched McCourt Postnup Agreement

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A lawyer who drafted the postnuptial agreement for Jamie and Frank McCourt says he switched versions to list the Dodgers as Frank McCourt’s separate property.

Testifying Tuesday at the couple’s Los Angeles divorce trial, Larry Silverstein says he changed the agreement in 2004 after it was signed — and didn’t tell Jamie McCourt the new version gave her husband sole ownership.

Silverstein hasn’t said why he made the changes.

The agreement is at the center of the dispute between the McCourts and could decide who owns the Dodgers, the stadium and surrounding land worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

The McCourts signed copies of both versions of the agreement but Jamie McCourt testified Monday that she never read the agreement.

    How can a lawyer change an already signed legal document without providing full disclosure to both parties. Something is fishy about this. Is this the lawyer from MA.? If so that explains it all, the majority of them back there can be bought off very easily. I’ve seen it first hand.

    Just another money hungry chick, trying to enrich herself through divorce. Just like many many other women in this state with it’s truly mesed up divorce laws.

    Save the attorney’s fees, split it down the middle, setl the property before the value and the news interest fades.

    This divorce is a joke. I hope everyone is watching and let it be a lesson. Both men and women, make the money yourselves but don’t get married. Unless you want to give up half of everything you’ve worked hard for…a lot of men and women are ungrateful and greedy. Unfortunately, you won’t find out until they take you to court and want half. California needs to change the divorce laws immediately.
