Fox, MLB file objections to Dodgers sale
Tuesday, April 10, 2012
NEW YORK (AP) -- Fox is objecting to the proposed sale of the Los Angeles Dodgers, saying the incoming ownership group that includes Magic Johnson has not disclosed whether Time Warner Cable is involved in the purchase.
Fox's Prime Ticket subsidiary filed the objection Tuesday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware. It asked for written assurance that Time Warner wasn't contributing funds being used for Guggenheim Baseball Management's purchase of the team from Frank McCourt and the incoming owners don't have any formal or informal agreements for the team's broadcast rights starting in 2014.
Fox asked that it be given parts of the purchase agreement that were not filed with the court.
Major League Baseball also filed an objection, saying not enough money had been set aside to satisfy what it is owed by the Dodgers.
