LA judge orders Dodgers to release deal details
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A judge has ruled that Los Angeles Dodgers ownership has to reveal details about its financial arrangements with former owner Frank McCourt.
Michael Sitrick, a spokesman for current owners, Guggenheim Baseball Management, said the judge on Wednesday denied the team’s request to seal a summary of the deal with McCourt.
He added there are no plans for appeal. The document could be made public later this month.
The team was sold last year for $2 billion. As part of the deal, Guggenheim and McCourt will share profits from a joint venture.
The ruling is part of a divorce case in which McCourt’s ex-wife wants a $131 million settlement thrown out because she believes she was misled about the team’s value.
McCourt’s attorney declined comment.
