to withdraw its objection to the sale.

Fox

had asked for proof that the team’s would-be new owners, Guggenheim Baseball Management, did not include

Time Warner

Cable and had no agreement with TWC for a new Dodgers television contract. Fox, which has the team’s TV rights through the 2013 season, received assurances that no deal, formal or informal, was in place.

The court will hear from

Major League Baseball

in this afternoon’s session, and Judge Kevin Gross has also agreed to hear an objection from the

Los Angeles Times

regarding a request by the Dodgers that documents pertaining to the land use for Dodger Stadium property be sealed.

Staff writer Bill Shaikin reports from the hearing over Twitter:
