Judge explains Dodgers’ ruling

WASHINGTON (AP) – A U.S. District Judge in Delaware says a bankruptcy judge erred in freeing the Los Angeles Dodgers from provisions of its current Fox Sports TV contract.

U.S. District Judge Leonard Stark released a 33-page ruling Tuesday explaining his reasoning after he issued an order last Friday to halt the Dodgers’ plans to sell the media rights to future games.

Fox currently has the rights to produce, record and telecast Dodgers games through the 2013 season. The contract gives Fox certain rights in negotiating an extension, including the right to talk exclusively with the team in advance of competing offers. But a judge handling the team’s bankruptcy proceedings ruled the “no-shop” provisions were unenforceable in bankruptcy.
