    "Donald Sterling is fighting, filing suit in federal court against the NBA and Commissioner Adam Silver and asking for damages in excess of $1 billion.

    The suit was filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles. It alleges that the league violated Sterling's constitutional rights by relying on information from an "illegal" recording that publicized racist remarks he made to a girlfriend.
    It also says the league committed a breach of contract by fining Sterling $2.5 million and violated antitrust laws by forcing a sale."

    I think he paid her to tape him, so he gave consent

    Now releasing it to media could be something if she was blackmailing him or had intentions to libel

    she is being persued for embezzlement and tax fraud

    both the Sterlings look like they got 10 years top, both uber rich full lives, and already were just doing their own thing,
    you think they would take the $2 billion and be done with it

    oh well good for him, he def as a chance

    I hope this stops people from allowing tax money to line these sports owners pockets

    Not if she has tapes that mention him abusing her in some way. Those tapes are legal in California law.

    Why is everything about the money? Can't you just do what you enjoy without being paid for it?

    She has collected about $1.8M in gifts in this voluntary relationship. Good luck with the abuse angle.

    the lynching (without due process) that took place was unacceptable of many levels. Innocent until proven guilty is so last century.

    do you think the gov should takeover all businesses to make sure no employees/partners are ever fired and everyone is treated fairly so the evil corps aren't allowed to make mean decisions that they feel are in their best financial interests?

    are you implying a corporation should be allowed to break the law if it's in their financial best interest?

    sort of seems like you are. i think the NBA should be held accountable IF they broke the law by defaming this dude. do slander laws not apply if he's a racist? they got a ton of money and great lawyers. what's the PC crowd worried about?

    not at all. agreed, one should end a business relationship without defaming. they still apply, I didn't say he was one. but if something is true, it's not slander. I also don't consider billionaire CEO's part of the PC crowd. I don't think they care anything about PC, other than how it effect profits.
