Frank and Jamie McCourt are getting divorced. Normally, that wouldn’t seem too relevant to sports fans. Yet, while most divorcing couples fight over who owns the car, the house, or the oak dining room table, the McCourts are fighting for ownership of the Los Angeles Dodgers. When the battle’s over, will enough cash remain to sign the best players? And will Mommy and Daddy get joint custody? The drama begins—with the baseball season hanging in the balance—at the courthouse.

Guest:

Linda Lea Viken, President Elect of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyer
