A Boston law firm is suing Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt, asking a Massachusetts court to declare that the firm 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 Angeles County Superior Court threw out the agreement in December, clearing the way for Jamie McCourt to seek half the team.

Bingham McCutchen LLP 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 seeking comment Monday night.
