Donald Sterling’s mental competency will no longer be an issue in next week’s probate court trial to determine whether his estranged wife Shelly Sterling had the authority to sell the Los Angeles Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer after attorneys from both sides agreed Monday to narrow the focus of the trial to whether she followed the provisions of the family trust regarding competency and whether she has a responsibility to complete the sale after Donald Sterling revoked the trust on June 9.

The attorneys agreed to narrow the focus after Judge Michael Levanas said in court that he was not inclined to delay the July 7 hearing to accommodate a doctor who had been retained by Donald Sterling, that could not be present during next week’s trial due to previous professional obligations and travel plans.
