Will Donald Sterling Suit Affect Clippers Sale? Maybe Not

LA Superior Court probate: 'I could do this trial in five minutes — it's a checklist,'

Donald Sterling and Shelly Sterling will go to courtAccording to Fox Sports, the Donald Sterling lawsuit may not even matter in terms of him stopping the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers. The judge seems like he is seeing it for what it is, a stretch.

Los Angeles Superior Court probate Judge Michael Levanas made no decision in the 45-minute court hearing Monday, but he repeatedly said that settling the Sterling disagreement may not involve dueling doctors and extensive legal arguments.

“I could do this trial in five minutes — it’s a checklist,” he said. “I don’t know why you need the court. Essentially, if the trustee has the power, they have the power.”

Donald Sterling was banned for life from the NBA and fined $2.5 million for being caught on tape making racist comments to V. Stiviano.
