Judge Tosses Suit against Shelly Sterling by Husband’s Mistress

Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors - Game Four

Judge Richard Fruin on Monday dismissed a defamation lawsuit by former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s mistress against his estranged wife, AP reported.

The judge found V. Stiviano did not present any evidence to support her claim that Shelly Sterling called her a thief and an embezzler. He said she did not present a single quotation to support her claim, in any of the hundreds if not thousands of media reports on the Sterling scandal.

“Stiviano does not identify to whom any such statement was made, ” Fruin wrote. “There is no information from which it may be determined that any statement, defamatory or not, was made by Mrs. Sterling at all.”

The judge also rejected Stiviano’s claim that former Clippers president Andy Roeser defamed her on instructions from Shelly Sterling.

Shelly Sterling is suing Stiviano for the return of $2.5 million in gifts from her husband, including a $1.8 million duplex, a Ferrari, two Bentleys and a Range Rover worth more than $500, 000.

Shelly Sterling took over her ailing husband’s Clippers and sold it for $2 billion to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.
