The suit came about two years ago after Donald Sterling was revealed to have made many racist comments about Blacks, specifically about Magic Johnson. The statements became public after his former mistress released recordings of their conversations together to the public.

The settlement in the Donald Sterling suit was first reported by The Los Angeles Times. The publication received confirmation in an e mail from Bobby Samini, Sterling’s attorney, which said, “Donald is pleased with the outcome and is looking forward to focusing on future endeavors.”

Donald Sterling’s ex-wife Shelley had also been named in the suit alongside the NBA. For some reason Mr. Sterling felt cheated by the more than $2 billion that Microsoft co-founder Steve Balmer paid for the team. Shelley Sterling had court appointed control over the Los Angeles Clippers after Donald was declared incompetent.

Pierce O’Donnell, Shelly Sterling’s attorney, told The Times, “Donald’s quixotic legal challenge to the record-shattering $2-billion sale was doomed from the very outset.”

The Los Angeles Clippers are doing fine without Donald Sterling’s presence. The team is currently leading the NBA’s Western Conference.
