Nordini holds his law practice in Naperville which is approximately 40 minutes to the west of Chicago.

Judge denies request to toss former Dodgers CEO McCourt divorce deal


Associated Press

A judge denied a motion Monday by former Dodgers CEO Jamie McCourt to throw out a $131 million divorce settlement that she argued was invalid because she believes she was misled about the value of the team that was later sold for $2 billion.

Jamie McCourt didn't present enough evidence to show that she should get more than what she received in the settlement reached with former husband and ex-Dodgers owner Frank McCourt, Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon said in his 57-page ruling.
She contended her ex-husband short-changed her $770 million by misrepresenting the Dodgers' assets during their divorce and believes Frank McCourt knew the true value all along.

Divorce is Better Than a Push Off a Cliff


(CNN) -- A woman in Montana is accused of pushing her husband off a cliff after an argument. The pair had been married for just more than a week.
Jordan Linn Graham made an initial appearance in court Monday to face a charge of second-degree murder. If convicted, she faces life in prison.
According to a criminal complaint, Graham recently told a friend she was having second thoughts about marrying Cody L. Johnson. CNN affiliate KECI reported the couple had been married for just more than a week.
The complaint said the couple argued the night of July 7. Upset, they decided to go hiking in Glacier National Park in Flathead County, Montana, where they continued to fight.
