Donald Sterling Files A Brand New Lawsuit

Clippers owner Donald Sterling filed a new suit Tuesday morning in Los Angeles Superior Court against his estranged wife Shelly Sterling, NBA commissioner Adam Silver and the Clippers, according to ESPN.

The suit alleges that all three parties violated the law when they tried to sell the team to Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. Sterling claims that he is the sole owner of the team, the Clippers franchise and the corporation that manages the Clippers and the team's finances.

According to ESPN, the suit alleges that, while Sterling did transfer his shares of the Clippers into a Sterling Family Trust in 1998, that trust was revoked by his wife in June, therefore all shares revert back to his control and the team cannot legally be sold.

The amount Sterling is seeking in damages from the three parties has not been disclosed.

Sterling also filed a federal suit against the NBA for $1 billion back in June.
