Elgin Baylor’s lawsuit against Donald Sterling shot down by jury

March 30, 2011
Clippers Donald Sterling is still a despicable human being. A man with a laundry list of offenses of offenses from the serious (racial housing discrimination) to just screwing up his NBA team. This has not changed.
     But he has won key court battle.
     A jury Wednesday rejected a $2 million lawsuit brought by former Clippers GM Elgin Baylor seeking damages for being fired due to age discrimination, the Los Angeles Times reports.
     It’s hard to argue, with the Clippers record over the last couple decades, that Baylor was a good GM who could not have been dismissed for cause. You can see the defense attorney and jury’s point there, even though you can also question how much real power Baylor had during parts of his tenure.
