Mediation between Jamie and Frank McCourt involving ownership of the Los Angeles Dodgers will resume as they await a judge's ruling on whether a postnuptial marital agreement is valid in their divorce case.
Superior Court Judge Peter Lichtman is expected Friday to meet with each side separately and present a settlement. Both McCourts are expected to be in a downtown courtroom and the terms of the proposal will likely be kept confidential.
Judge Scott Gordon has about five weeks to decide on the disputed 10-page marital agreement that exists in two versions - one that gives Frank McCourt sole ownership of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and one that doesn't.
Frank McCourt maintains the Dodgers are his separate assets, while his estranged wife wants the pact thrown out and the couple's assets divided as community property.
