Frank McCourt seeks $2M in legal fees from ex-wife
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Former Dodgers owner Frank McCourt wants a judge to order his ex-wife to pay him nearly $2 million in legal fees that he spent after she unsuccessfully contested their divorce settlement last year.
Attorneys for the businessman filed a motion on Thursday seeking reimbursement for the costs of fighting Jamie McCourt’s motion to overturn their 2010 settlement that ended an ownership dispute over the Dodgers.
Jamie McCourt’s attorneys argued that her ex-husband shortchanged her $770 million by misrepresenting the value of the Dodgers, which sold in 2012 for more than $2 billion. A judge refused to overturn the agreement in September.
Frank McCourt’s attorneys state they spent seven months fighting the motion and he deserves to be reimbursed by his ex-wife.
As part of the couple’s 2010 divorce settlement agreement, Jamie McCourt received $131 million tax-free and several luxury homes the pair had purchased during their nearly three-decade marriage.
A phone message left for Jamie McCourt’s attorney, Bert Fields, was not immediately returned.
A hearing on the motion has been set for March 12.
