An appellate court caught in an extraordinary legal snafu refused Friday to consider Donald Sterling’s request to block the $2 billion sale of the Los Angeles Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer but said he could file it again.

In a purely procedural move, Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas withdrew his final statement of decision in the probate case between Sterling and his estranged wife Shelly Sterling over the impending sale of the team.

“The petition is denied without prejudice to re-filing at the appropriate time in that presently there is nothing for this court to review,” said the three-judge appellate panel in a ruling issued late Friday.
