The NBA has fomerly charged Donald Sterling with damaging the league and its teams with his racist comments.  He will be able to plead his case on June 3 hearing.  Owners could vote to terminate his ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers.

The league  said Sterling has engaged in conduct that has impaired its relationship with fans and merchandising partners.

”All of these acts provide grounds for termination under several provisions of the NBA constitution and related agreements.’

Sterling was banned for life and fined $2.5 million by Commissioner Adam Silver after the release of a recording in which he made racist remarks. He has until May 27 to respond to the charge, and the right to appear at the hearing and make a presentation before the board of governors. He has the right to a lawyer at the hearing, but strict courtroom rules of evidence would not apply.
