Jamie McCourt To Ask Judge For Immediate Dodgers Sale

All of the hullabaloo over Dodgers seems to center around owner Frank McCourt. Can he make payroll? Is he going to sue Major League Baseball and Bud Selig? There's a minor detail that's often glossed over, though: there's a co-owner out there, and she wants the Dodgers to be sold immediately. From the Los Angeles Times:

Jamie McCourt asked a Los Angeles Superior Court judge to order the immediate sale of the Dodgers, in a filing submitted on Wednesday and made public on Thursday.

If the motion is granted by the judge overseeing the McCourt's divorce, the Dodgers could have a new owner by next season, which would avoid a Thunderdome-style legal confrontation with Bud Selig and MLB. From KTLA.com:

It's believed Jamie McCourt will argue that her ex-husband's actions have affected the value of the club and, as part owner, she has the power to have the team's value maximized.

McCourt is asking for a hearing date on the motion Thursday morning.
