After months of back-and-forth the LA Clippers are officially under new ownership.
Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer's $2-billion bid to purchase the team closed Tuesday after a California court confirmed Shelly Sterling's authority to sell the team on behalf of the Sterling Family Trust.
Sterling's attorneys have pledged to continue fighting the sale in the courts.
