A California judge cleared the way for the record $2 billion sale of the Los Angeles Clippers to ex-Microsoft c-e-o Steve Ballmer, Monday.

The judge sided with Donald Sterling's estranged wife in the case after the 80-year-old billionaire was banned by the NBA for making offensive remarks about African Americans.

Shelly Sterling sought the court's approval for the deal after taking control of a family trust and removing her husband as a trustee, after finding out he had Alzheimer's Disease.
