Clippers Trial In Limbo, With Federal Judge Possibly Taking Case
The case to determine whether the Clippers sale will go forward is "in limbo for the time being as the lawyers and probate judge Michael Levanas wait to see if a federal judge will take the case." Levanas has asked lawyers to return to the courtroom at 2:30pm PT. Lawyers for both sides said that the case has been assigned to U.S. District Court Judge George Wu, who is expected to "make a ruling whether he should hear the case or send it back to Levanas' courtroom." How long that will take is unknown. Levanas denied Donald Sterling's lawyers' request to "put off the probate case indefinitely" (USATODAY.com, 7/7).
