Former Clippers owner Donald Sterling, who was famously removed from ownership after his racist rant went viral thanks to a young lady looking for her own come up, has finally come to the end of the road in his lawsuit against the NBA. He had filed the suit after he was removed as owner and saw his team get sold for $2 billion dollars to Steve Ballmer, saying the league and other people conspired to get him out. Here we are a few years later and it’s just now a closed issue.


Sterling reached an agreement to settle his lawsuit against the NBA on Friday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“Donald is pleased with the outcome and is looking forward to focusing on future endeavors,” Sterling’s lawyer Bobby Samini wrote in an email to the LA Times, who first reported the story.

Those named in Sterling’s lawsuit included the NBA, commissioner Adam Silver, former commissioner David Stern, Sterling’s wife, and two doctors who found the former owner to be mentally incapable of serving on the family trust that controlled the team.

Sterling is still banned for life from the NBA for his remarks that set off a firestorm around the league.
