Judge Orders Frank McCourt To Continue Paying $225K A Month In Spousal Support

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt will continue paying his ex-wife $225,000 a month in spousal support pending a trial in November, according to an agreement reached between their attorneys today with the help of a Los Angeles judge.

Judge Scott Gordon also ordered that Jamie McCourt sell all seven properties the couple shares, one of which has already been sold for $1.1 million. Attorney’s said that money will be placed in an escrow account.

“Frank McCourt ought to be paying support in the same amounts that he was paying before. There’s no change except Frank now has more money,” said Jamie McCourt’s attorney, Dennis Wasser.

Jamie’s McCourt’s defense argues that Frank McCourt has made $44 million since last June in addition to a recent $150 million load from Major League Baseball.

Jamie McCourt also wants her husband to pay $9.9 million in legal fees.

“Neither one of them are running out of money but when you compare the amount of money she
has to the amount of money he has. That’s the standard. And the amount of money he has is substantial,” Wasser said.

A non-jury trial will take place, beginning Nov. 17, to determine spousal support.
