Los Angeles Media Interview Robbin Itkin on Representation of Season Ticket Holders Group in Dodgers’ Bankruptcy CaseAugust 22, 2011
KNBC-TV, the NBC affiliate in Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Times, and Bloomberg/Businessweek were among the media outlets that interviewed Robbin Itkin, head of Steptoe’s West Coast Business & Financial Restructuring Group, on the statement she filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court on behalf of the Ad Hoc Committee of Los Angeles Dodgers Season Ticket Holders, seeking to have a voice in the baseball team’s bankruptcy case. The committee includes the children of the late singer, Frank Sinatra, who bought season tickets in 1958 when the Dodgers moved to Los Angeles from Brooklyn.
In the statement filed August 16 seeking an official committee to represent the ticket holders’ interests, Ms. Itkin states that “the season ticket holders are not focused on cash payments but rather on the preservation of the Dodgers, the integrity of the team, the financial success of the team, the retention of the team as a Los Angeles team, overall – the long-term viability of the team.”
The Dodgers filed for bankruptcy in June after almost two years of falling attendance and a decline in merchandise sales.
