This would be a good time to talk about Larry Silverstein, the Boston lawyer who drafted the MPA and both Exhibit A's. In attempting to rehabilitate Frank on the stand, Steve Susman basically threw Silverstein and his firm under the bus. Frank, you'll recall, needs to prove that the California Exhibit A, which makes the Dodgers community property, was truly a minor clerical error.
Of course, this minor clerical error could be monstrously costly, to many folks involved. It might cost Frank the Dodgers. And it might cost Silverstein and his firm dearly, as well.
Silverstein really ought to be here for this litigation, as his role in the creation and execution of the Marital Property Agreement is integral to the case. But the court doesn't have subpoena power over him, and, for obvious reasons, he's not eager to testify voluntarily.
We're still at least a day from being able to assess which McCourt, if either, is in the lead. But you can be sure no one is going to come out smelling like roses. It takes a series of massive catastrophes to get to this point, and unwinding everything is an ugly process.
