Jamie McCourt unhappy about bankruptcy filing

Bud Selig's not the only one unhappy about Frank McCourt filing for bankruptcy -- Jamie McCourt's not thrilled, either.

Jamie McCourt's attorney released this statement (via the Los Angeles Times):

Today’s bankruptcy filing is disappointing and disturbing. During the years Jamie McCourt was CEO of the Dodgers, the team’s financials, although heavily leveraged, were stable and improving. In the almost two years since Mr. McCourt fired her and took over management of the Dodgers, Mrs. McCourt has made repeated proposals to resolve her right to 50% of the team in a way that would preserve the value and integrity of the Dodgers for Dodger fans, for Los Angeles, and for her family. She has continued to do so despite the many personal attacks against her by Mr. McCourt and his representatives.

The rule or ruin philosophy that appears to have motivated today’s filing is bad for everyone who cares about, or has an interest in, the Dodgers.

The part that never ceases to amaze me is the fact that these business people were able to amass boatloads of money to buy a MLB team, but not competent enough to keep from running it into the ground.

Hey ignorant one. Do a little research on Jamie McCourt. I believe she's a pretty sharp woman.

Jamie McCourt unhappy about bankruptcy filing

I think there continues to be confusion about what Mrs McCourt has been granted by the Family Court. They have simply ruled that the Property Settlement Agreement the parties signed was invalid because of way the copies were circulated and the errors in the type of document. No one is questioning that clearly Mrs McCourt wanted the Real Estate in her name and in return was willing to give all the risk and liability for the Dodgers to Frank. Just because the Court ruled against that agreement does not mean the court will grant her 50% ownership in the team at any future trial on the matter. The comment by her attorney is misleading. If i was Mr McCourt i would not have settled with her for 50% of the team either as there is no guarantee that she will get that at a trial and it should be noted her willingness to settle only based on the assumption she owns 50% of the team is likely why no deal has been reached. I would also point out that she filed not him and so the whole difficulty of this issue was commenced by her actions.

Yeah, right.  I'm sure this leach had a lot to do in that CEO position.
