Judge Gross To Frank: No Discovery
Bill Shaikin unwinds the day's proceedings in the bankruptcy court case:
- No discovery of how MLB has treated the other 29 teams in the past. This is huge, not only because it reiterates the decision from last week (Frank's and Dodgers attorney Sid Levinson kept returning to ways to get discovery without actually using that word), but because it will speed matters along.
- Judge Gross also set an Oct. 12 date to possibly disqualify Frank's legal team because they represent both Frank and the Dodgers. The judge was very skeptical about the merits of this move.
- Finally, the big show will happen on Oct. 31 — yup, Halloween — in which the meat of the case will be considered.
