Jamie_250Within a half-hour of Frank McCourt's publicists issuing a joint statement from Frank and Jamie McCourt confirming a divorce settlement, Jamie McCourt's publicist issued a statement on her behalf.

The statement follows:

"Jamie is pleased that this matter has been fairly resolved in the best interests of her family and the Dodgers' fans, players and organization. From the beginning, Jamie has consistently expressed her willingness to accept a settlement, even if it required her to give up her interest in the Dodgers, the team she loves, if a fair resolution were possible. That has now been achieved through the cooperation of everyone involved and Jamie looks forward to moving on and focusing on new opportunities."
