Updated, Friday 5:30 p.m. Pt: Donald Sterling filed suit on Friday against the National Basketball Association and Commissioner Adam Silver seeking more than $1 billion in damages. TheWrap obtained a copy of the lawsuit shortly after the NBA posted a memo announcing the cancellation of the June 3 hearing, which was intended to terminate the Sterlings’ ownership of the team. The league memo confirmed the team sale to Steve Ballmer, pending league approval. It concluded: ”Mrs. Sterling and the Trust also agreed not to sue the NBA and to indemnify the NBA against lawsuits from others, including from Donald Sterling.” But it appears that.
