Ted Danson seems bored to death here with Jamie McCourt.

Jamie McCourt scored a big victory today when Judge Scott Gordon invalidated the 2004 marital property agreement which had separated the assets, including a little franchise called the Dodgers, of Frank and Jamie McCourt. Keep in mind this is only a step, one of many in a process that may continue for months or even years. From Bill Shaikin and Carla Hall of the LA Times:

The ruling is not expected to have an immediate impact on the day-to-day operations of the team. Frank is expected to employ other legal strategies to dispute his ex-wife's claim to co-ownership of the team.

Frank could decide to appeal Tuesday's ruling. He already has notified the court he wants to use a different legal strategy in another claim to sole ownership of the Dodgers, one based on the concept that he bought the team with a company he established before his marriage to Jamie.

As usual, Josh Fisher of has keen insight:

Think of this as the beginning of the end, although the end might take longer than the beginning.

Which, I suppose, makes today the beginding.
