Dodger Divorce at Impasse, Team Fate Unclear

Dodger fans and those concerned about the fate of the team may have to bite their nails for another six weeks. After months of scandalous details, wild accusations, confusing post-nuptial agreements and eleven days in court, the McCourts are no closer to settling their divorce, according to KTLA.
Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon has declared an impasse in the divorce case between Frank and Jamie McCourt after a settlement proposal was rejected by Jamie. The judge has until January 19th to decide if Frank McCourt is sole owner of the Dodgers or if the couple's assets will be divided evenly.
As part of this final decision-making process, Judge Gordon could order the sale of the Dodgers.
While Gordon weighs the details before making a final decision, Jamie McCourt is receiving $225,000 per month in spousal support in addition to the $412,159 per month she receives to pay mortgages on the six properties the couple own. That's a far cry from the $1 million per month she requested to maintain the "lavish lifestyle she had during her marriage."
