It looks like the sale of the L.A. Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is on. A judge in California probate court has ruled in favor of Donald Sterling's estranged wife Shelley.

Shelley, citing a provision in the family's trust, argued that Donald has diminished mental capacity, allowing her to take control of the team. Judge Michael Levanas agreed today with her, ruling that she can complete the deal to sell the team. He even cited a California law that says she can proceed with the sale as if no further appeals were pending.

The NBA ordered Donald Sterling to sell the Clippers in the wake of racist comments he was taped making by his former girlfriend, V. Stiviano. Shelley quickly struck the $2 billion deal with Ballmer, who's set an August 15th deadline to complete the sale.
