Judge Rules In Favor Of Jamie McCourt
Bill Shaikin has the scoop. Obviously, there's still lots to be written here, but I'm tentatively hopeful that this will force the end of McCourt ownership.
Update: My fearless predictions:
- Jamie will press for a divvying up of assets.
- Frank will resist.
- The ensuing litigation will last for no less than three years.
- Meantime, Frank will continue as de facto owner of the team.
As you might recall, § 852(a) [of the California Family Code] specifically forbids the court from examining extrinsic evidence showing Jamie's intent with the document. Put simply: the text of the MPA controls. And when faced with two documents conflicting as to a material term--ownership of the couple's principal asset--what choice does a judge have but to toss the agreement entirely?Maury Brown reports that MLB has declined comment on the case.
