Jamie McCourt's lawyer clarifies spousal support issue

Jamie McCourt will have a chance to argue for temporary spousal support in April, her lead attorney said today.

Dodgers-logo The Times reported today that Frank and Jamie McCourt had "amicably resolved" the issue, citing a court filing by Frank McCourt's lawyers. The filing did not say how the issue had been resolved. Jamie McCourt had asked for $488,000 per month, pending a permanent ruling on the issue.

Dennis Wasser, the lead attorney for Jamie McCourt, said the "interim support" agreement simply postpones arguments on the matter until April -- they had been scheduled for Tuesday -- and formalizes her financial arrangements until then.

The two sides now are expected to turn their attention to setting a date for the trial that should determine who owns the Dodgers. Frank McCourt, who says he is a sole owner and has filed a marital property agreement to support his claim, has asked the court for a February trial date. Jamie McCourt, who says that she is a co-owner and that the marital property agreement is invalid, has asked for a later start.
