(CNN) — A California probate judge ruled Monday in favor of Shelly Sterling, saying the estranged wife of Donald Sterling can sell the Los Angeles Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. Judge Michael Levanas said Shelly Sterling acted properly in removing her husband from the trust that owns the NBA team and in winding up the affairs of the trust. The sale can go forward regardless of any appeals, Levanas said.
