Settlement talks resume in McCourt divorce case

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Settlement talks have resumed in the divorce case of Jamie and Frank McCourt involving ownership of the Los Angeles Dodgers after a judge ruled a postnuptial marital agreement they signed was invalid.

Both McCourts were in court Thursday with their attorneys to meet with Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon, who has presided over their divorce proceedings. There are two more dates scheduled to reach a possible settlement before a June 22 hearing in which Gordon will hear arguments on a request by Jamie McCourt to have Gordon order the sale of the Dodgers.

In December, Gordon deemed the agreement, which gave Frank McCourt sole ownership of the Dodgers, invalid and cleared the way for Jamie McCourt to seek half the team under California's community property law.
