LOS ANGELES (AP) - Donald Sterling has taken the witness stand as he challenges his wife's $2 billion sale of the Los Angeles Clippers.
Sterling was testy during his 90-minute appearance Tuesday afternoon, denouncing doctors who declared him to have Alzheimer's disease as ''hired guns,'' pleading a faulty memory about some of his most controversial remarks and repeatedly drawing laughter from spectators during the non-jury trial.
Sterling is due back on the stand Wednesday afternoon. The 80-year-old billionaire contends that his wife, Shelly, had no authority to singlehandedly arrange a team sale to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.
Sterling says he believes he can get billions more by selling Clippers TV rights to Fox and if he wins an antitrust suit against the NBA.
