Frank McCourt has failed to protect the financial interests of his ex-wife, Jamie, in part by negotiating a "secret deal" with Fox that "would have endangered" the value of the Dodgers' broadcast contracts, attorneys for Jamie McCourt alleged in a court filing Tuesday.
Her attorneys asked that Frank be ordered to provide to Jamie extensive financial information regarding the Dodgers' business operations, including documents related to negotiations with television outlets and efforts to obtain additional financing for the cash-strapped franchise.
The court set a hearing for April 11.
In December, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon threw out an agreement that would have granted Frank sole ownership of the Dodgers. Jamie claims that decision makes her half-owner of the team under California community property law and, as such, entitles her to full financial disclosure about the couple's assets pending resolution of the divorce proceedings.
"Frank has consistently and wholly failed to comply," her lawyers wrote.
Frank argues the court invalidated the agreement but deferred the determination of who owns the Dodgers. He has done nothing to diminish the value of the team, according to his representatives.
