Judge denies request to toss McCourt divorce deal

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Los Angeles judge has denied a motion by former Dodgers CEO Jamie McCourt to throw out a $131 million divorce settlement she believes was invalid because she was misled about the team's value.

Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon ruled Monday that Jamie McCourt isn't entitled to more than she received in the settlement reached with former husband and ex-Dodgers owner Frank McCourt.

Jamie McCourt contended her ex-husband short-changed her $770 million by misrepresenting the Dodgers' assets during their divorce. She believes Frank McCourt knew the true value all along.

The team was later sold for $2 billion. The McCourts' marriage was dissolved in 2010, and less than a year later the Dodgers went into bankruptcy.

A phone message left for Jamie McCourt's attorney, Bert Fields, was not immediately returned.
