LOS ANGELES  (CBSLA.com) – Attorneys for Shelly Sterling have filed a new motion in the legal battle with Donald Sterling, wanting to limit the focus of the upcoming trial on the sale of the Clippers.

COMPLETE COVERAGE: Donald Sterling Scandal

Shelly’s team has asked the judge not to allow Donald Sterling to present any evidence on his mental state.

“A battle of medical experts is not relevant to prove or disprove that Donald was incapacitated as of May 29, 2014,” said the documents filed by Pierce O’Donnell, Shelly Sterling’s attorney. “Such evidence would be relevant only if a court determination of (mental) incapacity was required, which it is not.”

Her attorney’s  also asked the judge to only accept evidence about the trust allowing her to sell the team.

If the judge sides with Mr. Sterling, the sale to EX-Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer of $2 billion could be dead and could risk losing all sponsorships and relationships with the fans and players.
