This week, Donald Sterling’s legal team argued on his behalf in the probate case over a dispute with his estranged wife, Shelly Sterling, but that did not stop them filing another lawsuit related to the future of the Los Angeles Clippers.

The new lawsuit names Shelly Sterling, the NBA, NBA commissioner Adam Silver and the Los Angeles Clippers. Under the suit, Donald Sterling is seeking damages and he alleges they “defrauded him and violated corporate law in attempting to sell the franchise to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer,” ESPN reported.
