Jamie McCourt leaves the Los Angeles County Superior Court for lunch with a bodyguard after the start of her non-jury divorce trial on August 30, 2010 in Los Angeles, California. A $131 million settlement was reached between the former Dodgers CEO and her ex-husband, Frank, but McCourt tried to have it thrown out as invalid because she was misled about the team's value. A Los Angeles judge has denied her motion.

A Los Angeles judge has denied a motion by former Dodgers CEO Jamie McCourt to throw out a $131 million divorce settlement she believes was invalid because she was misled about the team's value.

Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon ruled Monday that Jamie McCourt isn't entitled to more than she received in the settlement reached with former husband and ex-Dodgers owner Frank McCourt.

Jamie McCourt contended her ex-husband short-changed her $770 million by misrepresenting the Dodgers' assets during their divorce. She believes Frank McCourt knew the true value all along.

The team was later sold for $2 billion. The McCourts' marriage was dissolved in 2010, and less than a year later the Dodgers went into bankruptcy.

A phone message left for Jamie McCourt's attorney, Bert Fields, was not immediately returned.
