McCourts meet with judge over Dodgers ownership
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Frank and Jamie McCourt arrived for a closed-door meeting in a judge's chambers Wednesday in their dispute over who owns the Dodgers.
If Dodgers owner Frank McCourt found a fresh source of money to pay the team this month, he did not tell reporters about it. He had no comment on the team.
In court Frank's ex-wife, Jamie, disclosed nothing. That's because details of the dodger finances are not being disclosed to her, according to her attorney, Dennis Wasser.
"Unfortunately we don't have all of the documents," said Wasser. "The other side would be in a better position to tell you that. But again, this is a very good judge and I'm hopeful that he can bring the two sides together."
It was a stretch to make payroll last month as the team faces an onslaught of troubles: low attendance, a criminal investigation into a parking-lot attack that attracted nationwide attention, and last month Major League Baseball took over the team's financial operations. The MLB-appointed head must approve all transactions over $5,000.
Ownership of the Dodgers is still at the heart of the McCourts' divorce settlement.
Wednesday afternoon, attorneys were in and out of the judge's chambers and huddled in the hallway.
Jamie McCourt believes that the best course for the team is to find a new owner, and fast.
"Jamie wants the Dodgers," said Wasser. "That's what we're asking for."
Frank McCourt is guarding hope that he can broker a deal with FOX that could bring in a reported $3 billion.
Attorneys for both sides remained in chambers through Wednesday afternoon. Wasser said he did not expect a settlement Wednesday.
