Frank McCourt and the Los Angeles Dodger’s dispute continues to drag on.
The baseball club’s owner, who was initially feuding with Major League Baseball and his ex-wife Jamie, to continue controlling the team (the fight ended after McCourt agreed to sell the team), is now fighting with Fox Sports.
McCourt and the team are asking the United States Bankruptcy Court in Delaware to approve a motion that would let him sell the team’s television rights one year before their contract with Fox Sports allows.
The parties were scheduled to appear in court Wednesday, Nov. 30, but on Tuesday, Gross postponed the hearing until Dec. 7 the Los Angeles Times reports.
Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Gross appointed retired judge Joseph Farnan, the same person who mediated McCourt’s sale agreement with MLB, to attempt to resolve the new standstill between the Dodgers and Fox.
In a filing last week, Fox said of McCourt, “He should get out of the way and let everyone return to the business of baseball,” alleging that, McCourt operates in bad faith, is a walking conflict of interest, has “unclean hands,” manipulates the bankruptcy code and hurts the Dodgers, according to the New York Times.
