Appeals court maintains ex-Dodgers owner’s divorce agreement
A three-judge panel of the Second District Court of Appeals in California unanimously ruled on February 24 that a divorce agreement that gave Jamie McCourt, the ex-wife of baseball team Los Angeles Dodgers former owner Frank McCourt, $131 million and other assets to give resolution to their divorce deal, will continue as planned, the San Jose Mercury News reported.
The appeals court decided in a 22-page ruling that there was no reason to reverse the ruling made by a lower-court judge, who determined Jamie McCourt was not telling the truth when she testified that her ex-husband did not give her accurate details regarding the Dodger’s net worth.
Jamie McCourt previously tried to block the deal, claiming she was misled about the value of the baseball team.
The ruling noted that Frank McCourt provided his ex-wife with over 220,000 pages of financial records, and that when Jamie McCourt had been a team official in 2009, she was privy to a document that places the combined value of the Dodgers and the television broadcast rights at over $2.4 billion.
