We have followed the fate of the Dodgers in the midst of their owner's divorce.  Here comes the final update.  From the Washington Post,

The long, drawn-out and all-too-public battle between Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt and Major League Baseball over control of the team finally appears to be coming to a close.

I've been married for thirty two years and my husband and I are seperated (not legally). Last year in Two Thousand Eleven he dropped me from his medical insurance. Can I get a court order to get my medical benefits from my husband due to the fact that I am indigent or will I have to divorce him?

Thank you,

Laura Washington
