Here’s the New York Daily News reporting on the latest in the Donald Sterling saga:
Donald Sterling is reportedly shopping for lawyers to swat back at the NBA.
The embattled bigot has reached out to several law firms, including Los Angeles-based Glaser Weil, to build a legal bench that can rush to court and cry foul over his lifetime ban and league efforts to force a Clippers sale, TMZ Sports reported Monday.
Sterling did not return calls seeking confirmation.
“Sorry, he’s sound asleep,” a man who picked up on one of Sterling’s personal numbers told the Daily News Monday.
Glaser Weil partner Patty Glaser is a Hollywood super lawyer who has repped other big-name clients, including Conan O’Brian in his exit from NBC and Keith Olbermann in his fight with Current TV.
Her firm recently helped defend Paula Deen in a racially charged employment discrimination case in which the culinary queen admitted she used the “N” word.
