Before the Dodgers were sold, Jamie McCourt agreed to a divorce settlement with ex-husband Frank McCourt that gave her $131 million. Now that he has received considerably more than previously expected in the team's sale, she has sued and alleged Frank committed fraud by understating the team's value. "Mr. McCourt got about 93% of the family assets, and Mrs. McCourt got about 7%," her lawyer, Bertram Fields, told the AP.
Her contention is that Frank McCourt's valuation of the Dodgers asset at about $300 million was misleading, in light of the sale for about $2 billion. And even if it wasn't fraudulent, it was an error that needs correcting, her side says.
