Report: McCourts reach divorce settlement

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Frank and Jamie McCourt may have reached a divorce settlement giving him control of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/nUPOKH ) reports Monday that Jamie McCourt would get about $130 million and give up any claim to the team.

The deal removes Jamie McCourt as an obstacle to Frank McCourt's bid to keep ownership of the Dodgers by selling TV rights.

The newspaper report is based on unidentified sources familiar with the agreement.

Jamie McCourt spokesman Matthew Hiltzik and Frank McCourt spokesman Steve Sugerman did not immediately respond to Associated Press requests for comment early Monday.

The Times says the deal appears to set up a showdown for the Dodgers between Frank McCourt and Commissioner Bud Selig, who wants the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to order the Dodgers sold.
