LOS ANGELES (AP) — The probate trial on the future of the Los Angeles Clippers resumes today.

The trial is dealing with whether a deal negotiated by Donald Sterling’s estranged wife to sell the team for $2 billion is authorized under a Sterling family trust.

Sterling agreed to the sale but then tried to revoke consent in spite of a signed letter instructing his wife Shelly Sterling to sell for the highest price she could get.

The court action to resolve the matter has been under way since last month but was in recess for a week.

With three days of hearings ahead, Donald Sterling’s lawyers suggested they would call the battling couple back to the witness stand separately to address unanswered questions.
