LOS ANGELES (AP) — The ex-wife of former Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt has filed a motion to set aside the couple’s divorce settlement, claiming he committed fraud by vastly understating the team’s value.
Jamie McCourt’s attorney, Bertram Fields, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that attempts to modify what he called a “massive imbalance” in the settlement failed, forcing her to return to court.
The motion filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court claims Frank McCourt misrepresented the couple’s Dodger assets as worth less than $300 million before their divorce in 2010. The team sold in May 2012 for $2 billion to a group that includes former NBA star Magic Johnson.
Representatives for Frank McCourt could not immediately be reached for comment.
A hearing for the motion has been scheduled for November.
