    Judge Rules Against Donald Sterling, Clearing Way for Clippers Sale


    A judge ruled Monday that Donald Sterling's estranged wife didn't defraud him when she struck a deal to sell the Los Angeles Clippers to former Microsoft Chief Executive Steve Ballmer, saying she was within her rights to seek a mental evaluation that allowed the $2 billion sale to go forward.

    "I just tried to do the best thing for our family and for everybody else," an elated Shelly Sterling told NBC News outside the courthouse. "It's been very tough...and [Donald] and I do have love for each other and I hope it will all work out between us and everything will be good."



    Shelly Sterling, who has been married to Donald for nearly 58 years, said she thinks her husband "will be happy," even though the judge gave her a sweeping victory, including taking the unusual step of ordering that the sale be allowed to be completed regardless of an appellate court’s intervention.


    Although the judge issued a tentative oral order on Monday, all parties expect him to confirm it in writing by Aug. 13.

    "We are pleased that the court has affirmed Shelly Sterling's right to sell the Los Angeles Clippers to Steve Ballmer," the NBA said in a statement. "We look forward to the transaction closing as soon as possible."

    actually its her way of getting even; she is the one that in the end takes the Clippers out of his control even if she does not get it.

    say something stupid behind closed doors and a judge will rule and take stuff away with you on the "mental evaluation" premise? sickening.

    The judged didn't make the ruling solely on what he said behind closed doors. There was more to the "mental evaluation" than just the recorded comments that we all heard. Plus his team wasn't taken from him. Control of the team was taken and then the team was sold. He is getting something in return based on the sale of the team. This whole situation is a bit messy, but let's not pretend as if the team was taken from him and he gets nothing in return.

    Is he the owner? Yes. Did he want to sell what he owned? No.

    And yes, the mental evaluation was made heavily on his comment. Dont be deceived, the courts have political ties and agendas.

    This POS should have been run out of the NBA years ago for what he had done. So anyone trying to defend him needs to take a good look at his history.

    I agree with this, even though everything he did was wrong.

    It's his money and he owns the team. The fact that he's being forced to sell because of a private comment he made is pretty hilarious and a good look into why the NBA is a joke.
