STERLING FILES NEW LAWSUIT AGAINST NBA, HIS WIFE, NBA COMMISH ADAM SILVER, AND LA CLIPPERS

Donald Sterling filed a lawsuit against the NBA, it’s commissioner Adam Silver, and his wife Shelly Sterling on Tuesday, claiming they defrauded him and violated corporate law by attempting to sell his team, the LA Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer for 2 billion dollars. He asked for them to freze the sale, claiming that his wife had no right to sell the franchise because he is the sole owner and shareholder of the corporation that owns the Clips after revoking the Sterling Family Trust on June 9th. “The new lawsuit states the seller of the team is not Donald, and it’s not Shelly — the seller of the team is the corporation that owns the team, and that’s LAC Basketball Club Inc.,” Sterling’s attorney Bobby Samini said “When Donald bought the team, the shares of the corporation are only in Donald’s name. They were only issued to Donald, so Donald owns the shares of the corporation. He’s the sole shareholder. He put the shares up into the trust in 1989, and when we revoked the trust, the shares go back down to him.” Shelly Sterling’s attorney Pierce O’Donnell, called the lawsuit “a frivolous, last-ditch act of desperation by a delusional, bitter man” who is “obsessed with ruining a record-setting $2 billion sale of the Los Angeles Clippers — a sale that would solve the problems his racist rant started three months ago.” Sterling has already sued the NBA for 1 billion dollars. When asked about the time frame the lawsuit would be resolved Samini said “I think you’re looking at some time into the future, could you get to trial in six to eight months? In a perfect world, it’s possible, but you’re looking at a year or so before you have a trial on that issue. … We’re not working on deadlines.”  When asked if she thought Sterling was being greedy Samini said “He’s worth more than $2.5 billion without the team, if he was greedy, he would take the money and run. It’s not about the money. It’s not even about wanting the team. It’s showing everybody: If I have a conversation in my living room that’s inappropriate, that’s not a good thing. I shouldn’t be awarded the man of the year award, but at the same time, my private conversation, and on top of that my medical records, shouldn’t be OK to release that to the world and use that to hang me with.”
