Steve Ballmer can buy the LA Clippers, judge rules


In Los Angeles Superior Court today, a judge gave Shelly Sterling "a sweeping victory," clearing the way for former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer's $2-billion purchase of basketball team the LA Clippers.

"In a tentative oral decision, Judge Michael Levanas ruled in Sterling’s favor on all three counts and rejected virtually all of Donald Sterling’s arguments in the probate trial in Los Angeles Superior Court," reports the LA Times.
