McCourt Update

I didn’t get to it today due to other obligations, but you don’t need me when you have Josh to tell you all that has happened. Obviously the most notable thing in all of this is that the person who will be overseeing the case is named Commissioner Gordon.

It’s nice to see him back to work after what happened to Barbara.

    Craig, we’ll need you to separate the wheat from the chaff on this one. Was Jamie the big winner today for having the Dodgers excluded as a party to the divorce? Seems like an obvious call by Commissioner Gordon.

    I wouldn’t say “big” winner, but I do think it’s something of a win for her to not have the Dodgers as an active party.  If they were allowed to continue, eventually Frank would have gotten wise and hired separate counsel to go on the offensive, and it would have been two on one. That is not a HUGE problem, but it’s certainly an annoyance.

    I don’ think she lost much by not getting reinstated as CEO. It was never going to happen, and she had to know that (courts don’t give specific-performance remedies in employment situations very often).  I think that she had to ask for that to plausibly claim that she owns the team, but really, she doesn’t want to work in that office anymore.

    Finally, she got to keep access to credit cards and all of that, which she obviously wants. I mean, she can’t be expected to live for the rest of the year on the meager $500K Frank gave get last month, can she?
