The Irony of the McCourt case

2 Comments

Yesterday on the witness stand, Frank McCourt repeated something he said Jamie McCourt would say over and over during their marriage: “You can make a billion. You can lose a billion. I don’t care. I just want my own nest egg.” This is supposed to be evidence that Jamie had no interest in the Dodgers and wanted to be financially separated from his investments. And it’s fairly convincing evidence in the context of the legal issues at play in the case.

But ain’t it delicious that the more financially conservative Frank makes Jamie out to be, the less likely it is that she’ll get a piece of the baseball team he’s running into the ground?
