Clippers sale hinges on legalities of family trust

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The $2 billion sale of the Los Angeles Clippers will hinge on whether owner Donald Sterling's estranged wife had the right to unilaterally negotiate a deal with former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.

A judge says a trial set to begin July 7 in Los Angeles will look at the terms of the family trust.

It will not focus on whether the 80-year-old Sterling is mentally incapacitated. Sterling has been pushed to sell the team after making racist comments that got him banned from the NBA for life.
