The judge in the Dodgers’ bankruptcy case released a hearing schedule this afternoon, and it anticipates ten hearings between the next one on July 20th and the 10th one scheduled for Jan. 25, 2012.
Now, that doesn’t mean they’ll all be used, of course. As has been reported, Major League Baseball is considering seizing the franchise via a motion soon. If that were successful, things could wind up much more quickly. The same thing goes for the results of the July 20th hearing in which the judge will decide whose financing — Frank McCourt’s or the league’s — will keep the team running during the pendency of the case. Again, if baseball wins that one, it could hasten the proceedings and position things for a quicker sale of the team.
But yeah, it’s possible that this thing will drag on until 2012. Or the end of the world if you believe that kind of thing. Whichever comes first.
