More bad news for former Donald Sterling. The latest strike against him arrived when a California appeals court rejected his request to stop the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers. Even though the sale of the team closed August 12, the Sterling tried to stop it with another petition to the court. The following day, the appeals court rejected his request, further affirming that the team was sold to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer for $2 billion. “The evidence before this court indicates the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers to Steven Ballmer has closed,” said the court’s ruling, signed by three justices. “Petitioner (Sterling) has failed to show otherwise. Thus, there is nothing for this court to stay. Even if the sale had not closed, petitioner has failed to show that the balancing of the relative harms favors granting a temporary stay.”
