Frank and Jamie McCourt confirm divorce settlement
Frank and Jamie McCourt confirmed in a joint statement Monday that they have settled their divorce, as The Times reported earlier in the day. The McCourts disclosed no terms other than that Jamie McCourt would withdraw her Bankruptcy Court opposition to the Dodgers' proposed sale of television rights and would now support that sale. Major League Baseball and Fox Sports remain opposed.
The statement, which includes no quotes from either of the McCourts, was issued by the office of a spokesman for Frank McCourt:
"Frank McCourt and Jamie McCourt are pleased to announce that they have settled their divorce case. The terms of the settlement, which are already in effect, will remain private. Jamie will be withdrawing her opposition to the Dodgers proposed sale of media rights and instead will be filing papers in support of the process proposed by the Dodgers."
