MLB Claims Frank McCourt 'Looted' $189 Million
Frank McCourt's woes don't seem to be going away any time soon. According to KTLA, the owner of the Dodgers is now being accused by Major league Baseball of "looting" $189 million from the team's earnings, and funneling it into personal use.
MLB commissioner Bud Selig claims that McCourt siphoned off funds from parking revenue, used other funds to pay off personal debts, and put still more of the Dodgers' money towards "personal distribution."
Some of the money, says Selig, went through McCourt's Blue Land Company, which has nothing to do with the Dodgers.
Also coming up in the court battle is Bryan Stow, with MLB suggesting that Stow's beating was the direct result of Dodger Stadium being understaffed with security.
McCourt's lawyers say that Selig knew about McCourt's businesses, including Blue Land Company, and was just fine with them. They also say that MLB is inappropriately pointing the finger at McCourt over the Stow incident.
