Sale Of Clippers To Ballmer Closes; NBA Counter Sues Donald Sterling
Published August 12, 2014
Meanwhile, the NBA this week in federal court filed a counterclaim against Donald Sterling and the Sterling Family Trust, saying the banned owner caused "devastating and incalculable harm" to the league. The claim, filed in U.S. District Court in L.A. yesterday, is in response to Sterling's June antitrust suit against the league and Commissioner Adam Silver. The NBA is seeking to "recover damages related to the owner's recorded comments denigrating blacks" (LATIMES.com, 8/12).
