Clippers Trial Resumes; Donald Sterling's Lawyers To Present Case
The Clippers ownership trial resumes today in probate court in L.A., where Donald Sterling's legal team "will begin presenting his case." Shelly Sterling and her lawyers "continue to build momentum" in the trial. To date, Donald's "combative, rambling proclamations on the witness stand – and his vulgar outburst off the stand – have drawn the most attention" (USATODAY.com, 7/21).
With three days of hearings ahead, Donald's lawyers "suggested they would call the battling couple back to the witness stand." Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas said, "This is a case that has many unusual twists and turns." He noted Donald's lawyers were producing "witnesses we've never heard of" (AP, 7/21).
