Lawyer Denies Fraud Claim In McCourt Divorce Case

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A lawyer who once represented Jamie and Frank McCourt denies he committed fraud when he switched a key portion of a postnuptial agreement that initially excluded the Los Angeles Dodgers from Frank McCourt’s separate assets.

Larry Silverstein was on the witness stand Thursday for the third consecutive day in the couple’s divorce trial. He firmly rejected an allegation made by Jamie McCourt’s attorneys that he and Frank McCourt engaged in fraud when the correction was made without telling their client.

Frank McCourt also has denied the claim.

Silverstein says he fixed a mistake in the agreement to give McCourt sole ownership.

Jamie McCourt is seeking to have a judge toss out the agreement that would allow her to have a stake in the Dodgers under California’s community property law.
