Dodgers Owners Battle Over Spousal Support and Attorney’s Fees

Attorneys for Los Angeles Dodgers owners Frank and Jamie McCourt are due back in court on Wednesday to argue about whether Mr. McCourt should be ordered to pay some of his wife’s attorney’s fees.  The couple filed for divorce 23 months ago.

Jamie McCourt is seeking $9.9 million from Frank to help pay her legal bills. Mr. McCourt has asked the court to deny her request and to reduce his monthly spousal support payments. McCourt says he paid $7.76 million in spousal support last year.

Both parties have accused each other of misrepresenting their financial positions to the court.
