Judge Rules Against Donald Sterling, Clippers Sale To Proceed Immediately

On Monday, Judge Michael Levanas of the California Superior Court ruled that the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers can go through immediately.

In May, former Microsoft executive Steve Ballmer reached a $2 billion agreement with Sterling's estranged wife Rochelle to purchase the franchise. With the highest price tag in NBA history, the deal was blocked by the man in controversy.

Ultimately, the central argument was whether or not Rochelle had legitimate grounds to remove Donald's name from their trust. The final arguments have been heard, and the sale is going through.

Via ESPN Reporter Arash Markazi, a 1310b provision will prevent appeals.
