After a one week recess, the Sterling probate trial that will decide the future of Los Angeles Clippers resumed on July 21, USA Today reported.

Donald Sterling’s estranged wife, Shelly Sterling, seems to have the upper hand in the trial after the judge decided not to reject the testimonies of the two doctors who stated that Donald Sterling was mentally unfit to continue serving the Sterling Family Trust as a co-trustee. If the court agrees with this assessment, it would give his estranged wife sole authority to sell the basketball franchise.

The judge also did not allow Donald Sterling’s lawyers to call Shelly Sterling’s attorneys to the witness stand, where they hoped to frame the lawyers and Shelly as creators of a plot to oust Donald from the trust.
