Sterling appears in court at Clippers sale trial


LOS ANGELES — Donald Sterling has arrived in court to give testimony in a lawsuit over the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers.

Sterling arrived this afternoon and sat across from his wife, Shelly. His lawsuit is challenging her deal to sell the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer for $2 billion.

Sterling, who’s 80, showed no emotion as a psychiatrist hired by his wife testified that Sterling displayed early signs of Alzheimer’s disease during a May examination.

However, Sterling pulled his wife over as they got up to leave for a break and kissed her. She wiped away a tear as they parted.

Sterling’s lawyers contend he’s capable of managing financial affairs.

Sterling was ordered to testify in the case today after he failed to show up in court a day earlier.
