Jamie McCourt -- I'm Not Giving Up the Dodgers

10/27/2009 7:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In Jamie McCourt's divorce documents filed against her husband Frank, she is challenging Frank's statement that he is the sole owner of the Dodgers -- claiming she's been bamboozled.

In the docs, Jamie says they faced a "myriad of creditors" and for that reason certain assets were held solely by Frank -- notably the Dodgers.

Jamie says when she signed the agreements giving away her rights to the Dodgers, she was not represented by legal counsel. Jamie demands that the court declare "that any purported capital Marital Property Agreements are null, void, and unenforceable."

Furthermore, Jamie says the homes she and Frank had were held by her solely -- not as community property.

In the docs, Jamie also adds, "Frank and I always considered the real estate to be our property -- just like the Dodgers."

Observer, did you even read the article? Your legal theories are completely inaccurate.
She executed the agreement prior to the acquisition of the team, therefore it is not community property. In fact the transaction could not have closed without her specific waiver of CP rights.
I will wager you big money that the agreement contains a clause that affirms counsel advice even though she is an attorney.
She will take 20 cents on the dollar and run like the thief she is.

OK, let me see if I have this straight. The team ownership was put solely in Mr. McCourt's name so that team creditors could not access Mrs. McCourt's personal assets. Mrs. McCourt claims she was not represented by counsel when this happened - yet she's a lawyer herself? After this transaction was completed, Mrs. McCourt was still referred to as a "co-owner" of the team - which in her eyes means she is legally entitled to half of the team. Yet the McCourt residences, which by her own admission Frank and I always considered the real estate to be our property -- just like the Dodgers", belong solely to her now that they're getting divorced? Sorry, sunshine, but you can't have it both ways. I started out siding with Mrs. McCourt on this one, but that's changing rapidly the more I read about the divorce. Sounds like both halves of the couple are equally slimy.
