Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times — who has been all over the McCourts divorce saga since it began — has an update. And it’s not rosy.
Jamie McCourt wants to be considered Frank’s co-owner of the Dodgers. Frank wants no part of it and is going to try to string out the litigation as long as possible. Each side is going to wait for someone, be it FOX or Major League Baseball to come forward some assurances before any kind of settlement talks will happen. The specter of an indefinite Frank-Jamie co-ownership until such time the kids can take over is raised.
The upshot: we’re looking at least another year of McCourt-inspired limbo, complete with the same gagging debt-load and, I presume, the same gossipy mini-scandals popping up every few months.
Read Shaikin’s report for the whole picture. As is often the case with the McCourts, the situation is kind of messy and rambling, and Shaikin does a good job of pulling it together as much as possible.
