McCourt lawyer: Selig hasn't acted in good faith

LOS ANGELES (AP) — An attorney for Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt says baseball Commissioner Bud Selig didn't act in good faith when he rejected a proposed television deal that would help rescue the troubled franchise.

Robert Sacks told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Selig's decision to jettison the transaction with Fox Sports puts the Dodgers in a "cash-flow bind" and the commissioner could have alerted McCourt earlier about his decision.

Selig said Monday that the deal, reportedly worth up to $3 billion, wouldn't serve the best interests of baseball.

Rob Manfred, an executive vice president of Major League Baseball, says McCourt has been treated fairly and the decision to reject the deal was done after a thorough investigation.
