Frank McCourt accepts the settlement proposal; Jamie rejects it

McCourt Divorce Trial Continues With Ownership Of Dodgers In Contention Getty Images

We’re heading towards a judge’s ruling regarding who owns the Dodgers. That’s because yesterday Jamie McCourt rejected the settlement proposed by the mediator.  Frank accepted it, but as we know, it takes two to tango.

The best part was Frank’s statement afterward, issued through his lawyers, in which he said that accepting it was “the responsible thing to do for his family, the Dodgers organization and the entire community,” and that  “we can only conclude that Jamie . . . is allowing this matter to drag on further.”

This despite the fact that the parties are subject to a strict gag order regarding the settlement process and the case at large. The L.A. Times story quoted someone saying that this was calculated by Frank to make Jamie look greedy.  Know what? After everything we’ve learned about the McCourts over the past year, I don’t think either side needs the other’s help in that regard. And I bet the judge rips Frank a new one over it.

That aside, we can assume one thing: Jamie’s rejection of the settlement — which I believe likely favored Jamie to begin with — suggests that she feels very strongly about her case. She must be convinced that the judge is going to invalidate the post-marital agreement and make the Dodgers community property.

    Exhibit #1 on why if you have more than a couple pennies to rub together you should never get married! Because we all know (and I from experience) that marriage is the chief cause of divorce. That and agita. And athlete’s foot.

    You need a new picture of these two. Maybe one of Jamie bending Frank over a barrel with a huge “ya–hoo!” and cowboy hat??

      Jamie’s into pegging? No wonder that marriage fell apart.

      Myra Breckenridge. Anything with Raquel in her prime suits me just fine, despite the execrable screenplay.

        Gator: I’m very disappointed in you. I had you as a Sonia Braga man for sure.

    Ran across a funny comment on a porn-ish site that might be appropriate: Divorced man to friend, “Don’t get married, just find a woman that you hate and buy her a house!”
    Maybe if Frank had seen this years ago…
