First came word that former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer agreed to buy the Clippers for $2-billion. Then we learned that two doctors declared Donald Sterling mentally incapacitated, giving his wife Shelly sole power to sell the team. While that would be an opportunity for the Clippers owner to quietly walk away from the NBA, Donald Sterling's lawyer filed a lawsuit, suing the league for $1-billion. Anderson discussed these latest twists with sports agent Drew Rosenhaus and criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos.
Roger Mason Jr is the Vice President of the National Basketball Players Association, he told Anderson that he was stunned by the amount of money Steve Ballmer is willing to pay for the Clippers.
It is still unclear exactly how the NBA plans to remove Donald Sterling as owner of the Clippers. There is talk of a player boycott if he is still in control at the start of next season. Anderson spoke to Roger Mason Jr., who is Vice President of the National Basketball Players Association. He says the players are "unified and want to do the right thing."
Is it possible for Shelly Sterling to remain an owner of the Clippers? Anderson discussed this with CNN legal analysts Sunny Hostin and Mark Geragos.
Were the racist comments that led to Donald Sterling's lifetime ban from the NBA simply a matter of him being jealous? That's the explanation on a newly released audiotape that Radar Online says captures Sterling having a candid phone conversation. Would this explanation matter at all to the NBA? Can anything stop the league from taking action to sell his team? Anderson discussed all of this with CNN legal analysts Mark Geragos, Sunny Hostin, and Jeffrey Toobin.
A ten-member committee of NBA owners held a meeting today to discuss Donald Sterling's ownership stake in the L.A. Clippers. The league released a statement saying:
"This afternoon the Advisory/Finance Committee met via conference call to discuss the process for termination of Donald T. Sterling's ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers. The Committee unanimously agreed to move forward as expeditiously as possible and will reconvene next week."
Donald Sterling has not yet announced what he plans to do. But he could tie the process in court, which is something that he is known to do. Anderson looked at Sterling's options with CNN legal analysts Mark Geragos and Sunny Hostin.
Extremely graphic testimony in the Oscar Pistorius trial led to the former Olympian breaking down inside the courtroom and vomiting. It happened as a pathologist went into detail about Reeva Steenkamp's injuries caused by the bullets fired by Pistorius. Robyn Curnow was in court when this happened.
Anderson broke down today's proceedings with criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos and former federal prosecutor Sunny Hostin.
Oscar Pistorius sat through a tough week of emotional testimony in his murder trial. Several witnesses took the stand including the former Olympian's neighbor's who say they heard a woman's screams coming from the house. But Pistorius's lawyers tried to make the case that he mistook his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp for a burglar, and it was actually Pistorius screaming. Nick Valencia has the latest.
Anderson discussed this with criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos and former federal prosecutor Sunny Hostin who says Pisotrius' defense "is he screams like a girl."
CNN obtained recordings of jailhouse phone calls made by Michael Dunn while he was awaiting trial. He was speaking with his fiancé, and the conversations offer a unique insight not seen in court. He describes himself as both "victor" and "victim," he also calls his fellow inmates "animals."
Benjamin Crump is the attorney for Trayvon Martin's family. He spoke with Anderson after listening to the Dunn tapes.
Anderson discussed all of this with criminal defense attorney Joseph Haynes Davis, New York Times op-ed columnist and CNN political commentator Charles Blow along with our own legal team of Sunny Hostin and Mark Geragos.
