Sterling v. Sterling, B258151

In an action brought by the former owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, seeking to regain ownership of the professional basketball team that was purchased on August 12, 2014 via probate sale, the probate court's order sanctioning the sale is affirmed where: 1) the credited evidence overwhelmingly supported the court's conclusion that exigent circumstances warranted the sale of the Clippers to prevent extraordinary loss to the trust; and 2) the sanctioning of the sale was correct even through plaintiff, who initially agreed to the sale, purportedly revoked the trust in an effort to block the sale.
