OT: McCourt's Former Lawyers Sue Him

Bingham McCutchen is the firm that drafted the document Frank tried to use to say he had sole ownership of the team. The firm wants to bar Frank from suing them "if and when" he loses the team (considered an inevitability in these parts) because it won't be from the agreement but: "Any injury, loss or expense he has sustained or will sustain were caused not by Bingham's conduct, but by his own widely publicized financial problems, huge withdrawals of cash from the Dodgers, and strained relations with Major League Baseball," The other interesting tidbit from this is: "Bingham has long resisted any suggestion of malpractice, and the firm last fall declined a mediator's invitation to help fund a divorce settlement. Money from Bingham, as opposed to money from television contracts or minority investors, would not have been subject to Selig's approval." What that means is Frank is so broke he tried other ways to basically borrow money that wouldn't come under Selig's scrutiny.
