A U.S. District Court judge in Delaware is considering whether to halt a bankruptcy court order approving a process for the Los Angeles Dodgers to sell the media rights to future games until he rules on a Fox Sports appeal.
A federal district court judge in Delaware has scheduled a hearing next week in an appeal by Fox Sports of a federal bankruptcy judge's order allowing the Los Angeles Dodgers to sell the media rights to future games.
Fox attorney Catherine Steege argued Thursday that U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Gross exceeded his authority in authorizing the media rights sale, saying Gross effectively rewrote the existing contract between Fox and the Dodgers.
"The bankruptcy court substituted new contractual terms unilaterally proposed by the Dodgers without the consent of Fox Sports," she said. "... Courts cannot rewrite contracts for the parties."
