Of Course The Mccourts Will Mediate

From Settle It Now Negotiation Blog

 From today's Wall Street Journal Law Blog (an Angels fan):

 every time we hear the name “McCourt” these days, our heart leaps a little. Who cares if the ridiculous divorce travails of Jamie and Frank end up wrecking the team, after all? The worse the Dodgers fare, the more likely it is that fans will shift their allegiances to the superior team that plays 30 miles down I-5.

In any event, according to this AP report, the McCourts are finally softening, it seems, and taking the whole debacle into mediation.

A person familiar with the case told the AP late Tuesday that the two sides would meet in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom Friday. Click here for the take from Josh Fisher’s Dodger Divorce blog.
