LOS ANGELES: Can Jamie McCourt win motion to “set aside” divorce settlement from ex husband Frank McCourt?
But even assuming there was a mutual mistake or even fraud, can Mrs McCourt set aside the settlement? It depends more than likely on the language used in the settlement. Did the lawyers leave wiggle room to reopen in the event of changed circumstances? Did she waive all future rights? Was there actual fraud and misrepresentation? Did Mr McCourt know at the time of the settlement that the team was worth $2 billion dollars? Did Jamie’s lawyers perform their due diligence during the discovery process? There are so many questions, so many factors that could tip the scales in this situation. But stand by till November for an update. This apparently is when the case for a set aside will be heard in California Superior Court.
