Judge: Clippers Sale Can Go Forward

LOS ANGELES, California — A deal to sell the Los Angeles Clippers for an NBA record price may move forward, a California probate judge ruled Monday.

Judge Michael Levanas ruled in favor of Shelly Sterling, saying the estranged wife of Donald Sterling acted properly in removing her husband from the trust that owns the NBA team and in winding up the affairs of the trust.

The sale can go forward regardless of any appeals, Levanas said.

Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has agreed with Shelly Sterling to buy the Clippers for a league record $2 billion.
