Frank claims in 2004, when they bought the Dodgers, Jamie signed over complete ownership of the team to him.  In their bitter divorce case, Frank has submitted an agreement signed by Jamie, which includes an "Exhibit" that gives him complete ownership of the Dodgers.

But in new legal papers filed today by Dennis Wasser, Jamie's lawyer ... Wasser claims there was another "Exhibit" that was the final word on ownership of the Dodgers, which preserved Jamie's rights to the team. 

Wasser now says, after the document was signed, Frank and his lawyer pulled a switcheroo, by substituting the old "Exhibit" for the new one -- thereby cutting Jamie out. 

Wasser says in his new legal docs ... Jamie is the victim of a "fraudulently altered document."
