Jamie McCourt's lawyers drop a bombshell

In a brief filed today, Jamie's lawyers produce a version of the famed marriage agreement that specifically says the Dodgers were not to be solely owned by Frank in the event of divorce. And the filing alleges that Frank's version was doctored after the fact to remove Jamie's claim. Bill Shaikin:

In a court filing Thursday, Jamie McCourt argues there were six copies of the agreement, three that provided Frank with sole ownership and three that did not. Dennis Wasser, an attorney for Jamie, said the wording that provided Frank with sole ownership was changed after Jamie signed the agreement, thus committing fraud.

If the judge deems as valid the three copies that Jamie has urged the court to consider, Wasser said, the case could be quickly decided in Jamie’s favor.

“I don’t think there’s much to argue about,” Wasser said.

Frank's lawyer, meanwhile, says Jamie's side is now desperately grasping at straws that don't exist. This legal-family-business melodrama still has to be hashed out in court, but it appears the plot has thickened considerably.
