LOS ANGELES (AP) - A judge has issued a tentative ruling that the ex-wife of former Dodgers owner Frank McCourt must reimburse him $1.9 million in legal fees after she unsuccessfully contested their divorce settlement.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon issued his decision Tuesday. Gordon rejected Jamie McCourt's claims that her husband shortchanged the value of the Dodgers, which sold in 2012 for more than $2 billion.
Frank McCourt's attorneys sought repayment of nearly $2 million in fees spent opposing the motion. Jamie McCourt's lawyers argued in April the fees were excessive.
As part of the couple's 2010 divorce settlement agreement, Jamie McCourt received $131 million tax-free and several luxury homes the pair had purchased during their nearly three-decade marriage.
The ruling will become final unless Jamie McCourt's attorneys file objections within 15 days.
