LOS ANGELES (AP) — An individual familiar with the matter says Shelly Sterling will go to probate court Wednesday to seek an emergency order for a hearing so a judge can confirm her authority to sell the Los Angeles Clippers.

The individual was not authorized to speak publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Shelly Sterling brokered a $2 billion deal with former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer to sell the team, but her husband has vowed not to sell and is suing the NBA for $1 billion.

Sterling contends she is the sole trustee of The Sterling Family Trust, which owns the team. Donald Sterling was stripped as co-trustee after two neurologists determined he was suffering from dementia and "mentally incapacitated" under the trust's conditions. His attorneys have called the idea that he is incapacitated "absurd."
