LOS ANGELES (AP) — A judge has asked lawyers for more legal documents arguing their points before he decides whether to approve the $2 billion sale of the Los Angeles Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.

Shelley Sterling is trying to sell the team without the consent of her estranged husband, Donald, after doctors who examined him said he lacks the mental capacity to decide such matters.

The judge said the Sterling Family Trust does not allow the mercurial billionaire to contest medical findings which are sufficient to remove him as a trustee. But he agreed to consider arguments at a hearing June 30 before a scheduled July 7 trial.

Donald Sterling's lawyer acknowledged he is trying to kill the deal because he doesn't want to sell the team.
