Dodgers Bought with Insurance Policyholder Funds: The Mark Walter-led group that bought the Los Angeles Dodgers is making questionable use of funds to do so, claims New York Times Dealbook columnist Andrew Ross Sorkin. "A quick background check and some back-of-the-envelope math raises an obvious red flag: how on earth can this group of individuals afford to pay $2 billion in cash?" he asks. Walter's Guggenheim Partners is using money collected from policyholders by insurance company subsidiaries to buy the team. "Using insurance money -- which is typically supposed to be invested in simple, safe assets -- to buy a baseball team, the ultimate toy for the ultrarich, seems like a lawsuit waiting to happen," Sorkin writes.
