Frank McCourt leaves Los Angeles County Superior Court after day one of a non-jury divorce trial on August 30, 2010 in Los Angeles, California. The trial, being presided over by Judge Scott M. Gordon in California Superior Court, is to decide whether Frank McCourt is the sole owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team or his estranged wife and former Dodger CEO Jamie McCourt still has ownership stake in the team.

Testifying at his divorce trial Wednesday, Frank McCourt maintained his claim that he is the sole owner of the LA Dodgers. His wife Jamie McCourt has submitted documents stating she co-owns the baseball franchise. Yet, financial disclosures filed in court suggest the team is so saddled with debt, that both McCourts may walk away empty handed. What’s next in the marital saga, and what will it take for the Dodgers to attract top talent?
