Dodgers Owner Sued By Boston Law Firm

Boston law firm sues LA Dodgers owner

      BOSTON (AP) – A Boston law firm is suing Los Angeles Dodgers
owner Frank McCourt, asking a Massachusetts court to declare that
Bingham McCutchen LLP met its obligations and caused him no loss
when it drafted a marital property agreement with his ex-wife.
      McCourt had tried to use the 2004 agreement to establish his
sole ownership of the Dodgers. But a Los County Superior Court
threw out the agreement in December, clearing the way for Jamie
McCourt to seek half the team.
      Bingham says it has been the target of allegations by the
McCourts and their counsel critical of its work. The firm filed the
lawsuit Monday “seeking a declaration that the allegations are
without merit.”
      Frank McCourt's attorney, Sorrell Trope, did not immediately
return an email message seeking comment on Monday night.
