LOS ANGELES (AP) - A trial has been scheduled for next month in Los Angeles probate court to determine whether Donald Sterling was properly removed as an administrator for the family trust that owns the Clippers.

An attorney for Donald Sterling's estranged wife, Sherry Sterling, sought the trial to confirm that as sole trustee she can proceed with a $2 billion sale of the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.

Sherry Sterling's lawyer, Pierce O'Donnell, says three doctors have filed reports saying Donald Sterling lacks the mental capacity to be a trustee.

The trial will begin July 7 and last four days. The deadline for the sale is July 15.

Donald Sterling's lawyer, Bobby Samini, left the courthouse without comment after a clerk announced the trial schedule.
