Frank McCourt and the Dodgers filed a motion in the bankruptcy case in which they accuse Major League Baseball of singling out the Dodgers for rough treatment while treating other teams with financial problems “with a velvet glove,” thereby pushing the Dodgers to the financial brink.
They also accuse the league of holding out on providing documents and seem intent on turning this case into a contest regarding who the worst actor was in all of this as opposed to one in which the Dodgers’ financial best interests are determined.
All is fair in love and litigation, I suppose, but given that the issue first on the agenda in this case is whose bankruptcy financing plan is the best, I can’t help but think that the judge is gonna be annoyed by McCourt turning this case into a big discovery dispute clusterbang a week after things got underway.
But hey, as we’ve seen this afternoon, you can never predict what’s gonna happen in the legal system.
