Rage Aside..What’s the Law? The Donald Sterling Saga
Virtually everyone in America (and many across the world) has heard the tasteless remarks by current (but for how much longer?) Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling. Even worse is the fact that his “apology” has been widely viewed as more caustic than his original statements. Yikes!
After the rage and other strong emotions subside and the proverbial dust clears one must get down to the legalities of the situation. What are the legal issues and what are the possible outcomes? Could Sterling be stripped of his ownership? Could his estranged wife take over ownership of the team? Who has more leverage in the situation? For some discussion of these legal issues click here, here, here, and here.
I shall not go into great detail here as to my opinion on the Sterling matter but I will say that if he was to no longer be an owner in the NBA that would be a good thing in my book. In the words of the immortal Stan Lee, ’nuff said. Let’s see how it all plays out and beware when talking….you never know when a recorder may be rolling, right Don?
