McCourts take part in mediation

LOS ANGELES -- Negotiations have ended for the day in the divorce case of Jamie and Frank McCourt that could determine future ownership of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Both sides met all day Friday in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom before Superior Court Judge Peter Lichtman.

Court spokesman Allan Parachini says negotiations, which are closed to the media, are expected to resume at a date that hasn't been determined. The trial is set to resume Monday.

Jamie McCourt is seeking to have a judge toss out a postnuptial marital agreement, signed by the couple in 2004, so she can have a slice of the Dodgers under California's community property law. Frank McCourt believes he is the sole owner and the pact should be upheld.
