LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jamie and Frank McCourt, who are embroiled in a divorce dispute that could decide ownership of the Los Angeles Dodgers, are officially single.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon approved terms of the breakup late last month but the decision wasn’t made public until Tuesday. The McCourts were married in 1979 and have four grown sons.
The McCourts are awaiting Gordon’s decision on whether a postnuptial marital agreement they signed in 2004 is valid. The 10-page document exists in two versions — one that gives Frank McCourt sole ownership of the Dodgers, and one that doesn’t.
Jamie McCourt, who filed for divorce in October 2009, wants the agreement thrown out and their assets divided as community property.
