LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Times is reporting that the estranged wife of Dodgers owner Frank McCourt will ask a L.A. Superior Court judge to order the immediate sale of the team.
According to two people familiar with the legal proceedings, Jaime McCourt, the former CEO of the Dodgers who is embroiled in a contentious divorce with her husband, is expected to urge Judge Scott Gordon to order a sale before Commissioner Bud Selig and the league can seize the cash-strapped club.
Jaime McCourt believes the actions of her husband have put the storied franchise's value in danger. Gordon, who is overseeing the couple's divorce, is expected Thursday to set a date to hear her request, according to the Times.
