DOVER, DEL. (AP) - Attorneys for Major League Baseball are no longer trying to disqualify attorneys representing the Los Angeles Dodgers in the team’s bankruptcy case.

In a stipulation filed this week in advance of a Wednesday hearing, league attorneys said they were withdrawing the motion at the suggestion of a court-appointed mediator.

League attorneys had argued that the Dodgers attorneys should be disqualified because they were advancing the interests of Dodgers owner Frank McCourt at the expense of the team’s interests.

The Dodgers released a statement Tuesday saying withdrawing the motion was appropriate and ends an unnecessary attempt by Major League Baseball to divert the focus in the case from maximizing the value of the Dodgers estate.

The judge has scheduled a hearing later this month to determine the fate of the team.
