    Donald Sterling's comments to V. As he threatened, Donald Sterling is not giving up the Los Angeles Clippers without a fight. Donald Sterling's legal team scored a victory this week, but it is unlikely that it will stop the eventual sale of the Los Angeles Clippers. The latest turn in this seemingly endless soap opera came as Sterling's wife, Shelly Sterling, plans to go to probate court in Los Angeles on Wednesday morning at 8:30 to try and get an expedited hearing before a judge seeking affirmation that Shelly Sterling acted legally and properly late last month in determining that Donald Sterling was mentally incapacitated, and thus unable to continue his role as co-trustee of the Sterling Family Trust, which owns the Clippers and other properties that the Sterlings have acquired over the years. A trial will be held next month to determine whether Donald Sterling, who opposes his estranged wife's planned sale of the Los Angeles Clippers, was properly removed as an administrator for the family trust that owns the team. He wound up suing the team, Sterling and the NBA, alleging that he was underpaid during his tenure with the team. And on top of that, she indemnified the league against any lawsuits from Donald; in essence, she's covering our expenses or any judgment against us."
