McCourts Settle Divorce, Contingent On Fox Deal

Frank and Jamie McCourt announced a divorce settlement, reports Bill Shaikin of the L.A. Times.  However, the settlement is contingent upon MLB's approval of the Dodgers' deal with Fox, which SI's Jon Heyman says won't happen (Twitter link).  McCourt disagrees.  In the Fox deal is not approved, it's back to divorce court.  A decision is expected Tuesday, Jamie's attorney told Shaikin (Twitter link). 

Shaikin reports that the McCourts also "agreed to a one-day trial so that Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon could make a final determination of whether the Dodgers belong solely to Frank McCourt or whether the team should be considered community property."  If the Dodgers are ruled community property, the team is likely to be sold as a result.
