Jamie McCourt's attorney calls bankruptcy filing 'bad for everyone who cares about the Dodgers'

Jamie_250 Jamie McCourt's attorney, David Boies, released the following statement Monday about the Dodgers' bankruptcy filing:

Today’s bankruptcy filing is disappointing and disturbing. During the years Jamie McCourt was CEO of the Dodgers, the team’s financials, although heavily leveraged, were stable and improving. In the almost two years since Mr. McCourt fired her and took over management of the Dodgers, Mrs. McCourt has made repeated proposals to resolve her right to 50% of the team in a way that would preserve the value and integrity of the Dodgers for Dodger fans, for Los Angeles, and for her family. She has continued to do so despite the many personal attacks against her by Mr. McCourt and his representatives.
The rule or ruin philosophy that appears to have motivated today’s filing is bad for everyone who cares about, or has an interest in, the Dodgers.
