Los Angeles Dodgers Lawyers Will Put Bud Selig Under Oath

The Los Angeles Dodgers aren't going quietly with their bankruptcy issue. In the past, owner Frank McCourt blamed MLB commissioner Bud Selig for the issue and now he'll take to the courts to prove it.

Selig is set to be deposed in two weeks by lawyers representing Dodgers owner Frank McCourt, according to a bankruptcy court filing late Thursday via a report in the Los Angeles Times. According to the deposition, Selig would be required in court on July 15.

While in court, McCourt's lawyers are looking for Selig to answer two important questions according to the Times: How the MLB approved the Dodgers' interlocking entities and rent payments to which the league now objects as well as how the MLB devised and implemented what McCourt has said is an MLB investigation with a "predetermined" outcome of ousting him from ownership.

Along with Selig, there are six other current or former baseball executives being summoned for depositions. This could get even uglier than it already is.
