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.
