As the McCourts Turn, Wednesday edition

mccourtslogo.jpgThe Dodgers have filed a friend-of-the-court legal brief siding (surprise) with Frank in the divorce proceedings with Jamie, and alleging that Jamie was fired from her $2 million-a-year job as CEO of the ball club for "having an inappropriate relationship with a subordinate employee, Mr. Jeff Fuller, her self-described '24 hour driver' and '24 hour security.'" Fuller was employed by the Dodgers as director of protocol — every team has one of those, right? The brief opposes Jamie's bid to be reinstated, and is signed by Frank's divorce attorney.

How big is the unfolding McCourts drama? has given the running story its own spot on the front page — above the carnage in Afghanistan, even though that's the site's most-viewed story.
