LOS ANGELES—A court commissioner will consider setting a trial date in a case that will determine whether Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt gets sole possession of the club, or if his wife is declared a co-owner.
Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon is scheduled to listen to arguments on Tuesday on when the trial in the couple's ongoing divorce dispute should begin.
The attorney for McCourt's estranged wife, Jamie McCourt, believes the trial will happen later this year or early next year. Frank McCourt's attorneys are pressing for a quick resolution.
Frank McCourt has argued that a marital agreement signed in 2004 gives him the rights to the Dodgers, while his wife gets the couple's six homes and one condominium. She maintains that she is the team's co-owner.
