LOS ANGELES (AP) — The judge in the dispute between Frank McCourt and his former wife over ownership of the Los Angeles Dodgers has finalized his decision that their marital property agreement is invalid.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Gordon gave both sides time to lodge objections to his Dec. 7 ruling. On Wednesday, he sustained two out of five objections by Frank McCourt, whose attorneys have yet to appeal Gordon’s decision. A hearing will be held Jan. 25 over a proposed judgment submitted by Jamie McCourt.
A spokesman for Frank McCourt did not have immediate comment.
The former couple battled over the marital agreement they signed in 2004. Gordon’s ruling allows Jamie McCourt to seek half of the Los Angeles Dodgers after she was ousted by her ex-husband as the team’s CEO in October 2009.
