Report: Frankenjamie To Settle By Week's End
- Larry Silverstein, architect of the contested Marital Property Agreement, testifies he did not notify Jamie McCourt of the changes to Exhibit A that gave Frank exclusive ownership of the Dodgers, claiming he "just miswrote" the document.
- Frank's attorney went into damage control mode, trying to minimize the importance of the change in the document:
“By failing to go to the clients with this innocent mistake, as he calls it, he deprived both parties of the opportunity to clarify what they wanted,” said Bruce Cooperman, one of Jamie’s attorneys.
So neither version of the agreement should be honored: “Both contracts should be both thrown out,” said her attorney Dennis Wasser.
- MLB's attorney won't be required to testify.
- Update: More from Bill Shaikin:
In any settlement, Frank would be expected to retain control of the Dodgers and Jamie would be expected to bow out. The McCourts had negotiated before the divorce trial began Aug. 30, but they were hundreds of millions of dollars apart.No. Please, God, no.
