Frank McCourt dismissed Jamie McCourt's allegation that he tampered with documents to deprive her of a share of the Dodgers as "offensive, flatly wrong and not supported by a shred of evidence" in court papers filed Tuesday.
Exhibit A, in the version of the agreement signed by her in Massachusetts on March 31, 2004, and signed by Frank in California on April 14, 2004, provides Frank with "all securities … currently listed solely in Frank's name exclusive of the following," and specifically lists "within this exclusion ... all assets of the Los Angeles Dodgers ... and 276 acres of land located in Chavez Ravine."
The Exhibit A upon which Frank relies, signed by both parties in Massachusetts on March 31, 2004, uses the word "inclusive" rather than "exclusive" and "including without limitation" rather than "within this exclusion."
Jamie McCourt has asked the court to throw out the agreement on the basis of the discrepancy, which likely would result in the Dodgers' being considered community property. She has said she would never have knowingly signed an agreement waiving her right to team ownership.
