(NBA) Clippers' future up to judge
(06-24 16:59)

With a $2 billion sale of the Los Angeles Clippers hanging in the balance, a judge suggested the terms of a family trust are clear enough to remove Donald Sterling as a trustee and allow his estranged wife to sell the team without his consent.
At one point, Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas said on Monday the Sterlings' trust agreement was so unambiguous that "I could decide this case in five minutes.''
At the center of the volatile court battle are reports from three doctors who examined the 80-year-old Sterling and found he shows symptoms of early Alzheimer's disease and dementia. His lawyers argued he should be able to call his own experts at a trial set for July 7.
The judge said the trust agreement provides that if two doctors examined Sterling and found he lacked the capacity to manage his own affairs, he would be removed as a trustee. There was no provision to contest the decision, he said.
"I don't know why you want the court involved at all,'' he told lawyers. --AP
