March trial date set for Sterling mistress case

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) A judge has set a March trial date in the lawsuit by Donald Sterling's estranged wife against his mistress.

Shelley Sterling accuses V. Stiviano of befriending wealthy older men and receiving lavish gifts.

She's seeking the return of $2.5 million in gifts that included a $1.8 million duplex purchased with money from her husband. The suit says Stiviano also received a Ferrari, two Bentleys and a Range Rover worth more than $500,000.

Shelley Sterling claims them as community property.

Stiviano is the girlfriend whose recordings of Donald Sterling making offensive remarks led to him being banned from the NBA and forced the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers.

Judge Richard Fruin scheduled a Friday hearing on whether to dismiss a counter suit by Stiviano who claims Shelley Sterling defamed her.
