Donald Sterling preparing to hire lawyer to sue NBA

Donald SterlingStraight from the department of “Headlines you never saw coming,” is this story.

Donald Sterling is shopping around for lawyers who will help him sue the NBA for banning him for life and attempting to push him out as an owner, TMZ reports. They say Sterling has talked with firms Glaser Weil as well as Quinn Emanuel Urquhart and Sullivan.

The NBA last week announced its punishment of Sterling, which included the maximum fine of $2.5 million. They also banned him from the league for life. Reports also said the league would look to push Sterling out as an owner.

Everyone knew that Sterling would not go quietly. The man has a litigious history and would never lose his prized possession without a legal fight, especially one where he has serious grounds to defend himself. Just think about the situation: Sterling is being forced out and suspended over what he said in a private recording that may or may not have been obtained via illegal means. People are already lining up to make an offer to purchase a team that still has an owner. You better believe that the Sterling family will do what it can to block a sale. This could go on for years.

    I believe Donald Sterling is looking for attorney’s that will sue the NBA and win the case for him. The NBA is wrong for their decisions on Sterling due to the fact those comments were made in a private home which you can say anything you want to about people. I do it in my own home. He can win this case and also sue TMZ for broadcasting it over the air. They should have know better. His girlfriend belong in prison for five years for stealing the tapes. She had no reason to do what she did. The blacks of today are different than in my time which was the 30′s, 40′s, & 50′s.They have no respect, are bold and want every thing their own way. Their are millions of whites that don’t like blacks but they hide it. This younger generation of today are nothing but trouble have a bad home life and don’t care about anyone else but themselves. They were brought up that way. I hope Sterling finds the right attorney’s and wins the case.

    As I said before “WE live in a country where we are ruled by Democracy and freedom of speech is allowed and Mr. Sterling has aright to say whatever he wants to say”; but like Shakespear says ” The good people does live after them the Evil is often interior in their bones”, to me that is a hell of away to leave the party and who in the hell put Commissioners in charge of our Democracy. These people are riding the tail of our Democracy and are coming from Plutocracy point of view and who gave them the power to make decisions for or against our Democracy. Critical Thinking is needed in America cause Where? has our Democracy gone. What? the hell is going on In America. MONIES are destroying our way of life. Thank You are the magic words in my book. I Love Ya All. Mr. C. E. KING

    Hey look at Jerry Springer and Steve Wilkos – and yes Maripie Popovich – is that his name – let alone this horrible HOARDERS garbage show — and say you can not see — a picture is worth a 1,000 words……THERE IS STILL FREE SPEECH IN THIS COUNTRY AND AS A WHITE PERSON I AM FED UP WITH GARBAGE SHOWS and Oprah and Dennis Rodman – and OJ — (he the glove did not fit but he is still on trial after being found innocent – stripped of his glory — in a crime they have yet to prove – he committed) –
