This all the result of Jamie McCourt winning the battle over that marital property agreement that was supposed to have the Dodgers being Frank’s sole property but, because of some document switcheroo, ended up being held a nullity and the Dodgers rendered joint property of the McCourts.
As I said at the time, I believe Frank’s old lawyer when he says that he was just trying to make the replaced document conform to the couples’ wishes. A simple mistake and then a harmless fix, right? But, sadly for him, Frank and his law firm, you can’t just go switching out legal documents like that. Or, at the very least you should destroy the old superseded version.*
The upshot of all of this is that, eventually, Frank is going to have help paying Jamie off to settle the divorce. Help from his old law firm in the form of a malpractice suit settlement. I suppose that’s depressing on some level, but it could be worse.
*Note: that’s still wrong, but hey, at least no one is getting caught then!
