Sterling Trial Delayed: Donald Wants A Federal Court Date


It's called "procedural limbo..."

Donald Sterling's attorneys are looking to move the competency trial to a federal location instead of the Los Angeles District Court. Sterling wants the federal court to determine if his privacy was violated when his medical records were given to his wife, Shelly.

The judgment will determine whether or not Shelly Sterling has (or even had) the authority to negotiate a sale of the Clippers on behalf of the family trust or if the privacy violation wipes all of those activities out.

Donald Sterling maintains he was "tricked" into the examination and that the information has no bearing on his capacity to manage, own, or even execute day-to-day operations of the franchise.

Here's the early thoughts from Los Angeles...

The deadline for the sale is supposed to be by July 15th.
