The divorce trial between Frank and Jamie McCourt opens its third and final scheduled week on Monday, with the sides remaining far apart on a settlement.
Frank has offered close to $100 million, according to sources, about what each of the McCourts would get if the Dodgers were sold today, with debt and taxes subtracted from the sale price. Jamie is seeking closer to $400 million, reflecting the Dodgers' future revenue potential from television rights and stadium land development.
Jamie has asked for a percentage of ownership in the Dodgers, since Frank has proposed a series of payments rather than an immediate lump sum. Frank has refused to consider granting her any share of the team.
The parties made little progress over 10 hours of mediation talks Friday. Neither side appears to think its position has been weakened by the first two weeks of trial testimony, according to sources on both sides. The sources were not authorized to speak publicly about confidential settlement discussions.
