“You listen ... It is a criminal act. Sterling doesn't have to do anything b/c I'm not talking about civil court. It is up to the California State District Attorney on whether to prosecute. A grand jury could convene otherwise. But the DA must review the evidence regardless of the hyperbole.
I don't care for Sterling's remarks one bit but I also don't want to see a citizen of California be disenfranchised. Our Constitutional protections (in this state) are taking a serious hit. Trial by media can't be avoided.
Again I could care a flying fig about Sterling, the team or anyone else involved in the scandal. Let the chips fall where they may, no skin off my nose,.. GET IT!”

“In your hatred of one man you would toss California Constitutional protections. It doesn't matter who what he still has rights in this state.
I could care less that he was ousted from the NBA”

“Listen very carefully. Donald Sterling has no right to take that California state law and sue anyone [which clearly he has not, and will not]. He was aware and consented to being taped by V. Stiviano. Therefore negating California state law of illegal taping without consent. This is why he is leaving without a fight. he knows he has no case. If you, Charlie, know something that his lawyers doesn’t, please either call him or send him a letter ASAP, bc it looks like the Sterlings are gonna sell the team. If not, get on with your life, and..............get over it!!!!”

“In California it is against the constitution to tape someone without their permission. Do you have proof he signed anything? Another option is to ask the person being recorded if they give their permission and have it recorded at the same time on the same device. still that doesn't negate our privacy laws.”

kdswasp80 on May 23, 2014 at 17:55:03

“Earth to Charlie!!! It doesn’t matter! He’s still out of the NBA! Deal with it! He sure can sue Stiviano all he’d like though. What aren’t you getting through your head? This is “private enterprise” and he signed the contract. Please, people stop saying the California thing, it has nothing to do with the NBA.”

justpatrick on May 23, 2014 at 13:50:56

“A verbal agreement is still a legal agreement if the consent was mutual. And Sterling has said in public statements that he agreed to the tapings.”

cruzy on May 23, 2014 at 13:31:33

“Whether he was recorded illegally or not is a separate matter. If he was illegally recorded, his only course of action is to sue his ex-secretary who recorded him. The issue is that he entered into a contract, which prohibts him from embarassing the league and requires a certain standard of conduct. It doesn't matter how the NBA found out about his violation of his contract obligations, especially since no one in the NBA solicited or participated in the taping of his conversation.

He may able to sue his ex-secretary (or girlfriend, as the rumors go) for a violation of his privacy, but that does not affect the fact that the NBA can still oust him for violating his contract.”

“Oh well, he can claim his privacy was violated all he likes...doesn't change the fact that he's out”

“No idea whether he signed anything, but he admitted to consenting when this first came out. He was pissed that she leaked it, but never said she didn't have permission to tape.”

“How do you know how long Shaq has been abusive to the least fortunate? There's a double standard here. This isn't the first time Shaq has revealed the shallowness of his soul in public. Sterling didn't intend to hurt anyone. Shaq did. Since Shaq tweeted his for the whole world to see and be appalled at his behavior. Weight wise, You must be a journalist.”

“My husband lived in Orlando when he played for the Magic and met him on several occasions never once was anything ever even rumored about him being a "typical jock lunk" with all the shallow and silly behavior that entails. On the other hand, Sterling most certainly had a long history of being a racist prig who only was protected by his money just like many old white 1%'er bigots... http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2055491-elgin-b... One insensitve shallow tweet isn't the issue it is ALL of Sterlings past and continued racism and his obvious "entitlement" mentality to be an obnoxious a*hole simply because he has a lot of money and truly nothing more”

“If she recorded them in California, she's guilty of violating his constitutional rights both state and federal.
Shaq, just recently made fun of a developmentally challenged person. Threw a tweet out, mocking this poor guys looks w photo so all could get a good laugh. Where's the outrage?”

jpginla on May 12, 2014 at 11:22:26

“The 4th Amendment proscribes only government searches and seizures so it is most unlikely that there is a constitutional violation (someone could have been recording him at the request of a government official, but that seems rather unlikely). State statutes protect against that (otherwise you wouldn't need a statute that proscribes these sorts of violations of privacy).

The problem for Sterling is that playing this out in the courts doesn't provide a remedy in line with the harm caused, because the effect of his racism becoming public knowledge is way more profound than the value of the loss (although, let's be real, anyone who knew about the man before this final straw knew that he was a racist already). He could sue whomever recorded him if he wants (assuming it wasn't consensually recorded, which might be argued), but what would he get for it? The damage to his reputation is something that he is responsible for, not the person recording. (Especially since it took him two weeks to make any kind of apology at all, how do you differentiate the harm caused by the statement from the harm caused by his just as outrageous reaction?) If he wins a judgement of $1 or $1M (or even $10M), he will still lose his basketball team.

But it's not like the team is going to be just taken, he is poised to make more than $1B from sale of the team.”

TeraWatt60 on May 11, 2014 at 19:55:26

“Actually there was quite a bit but since Shaq doesn't have a track record of being a bigot or even a a*hole like Bundy, Robertson, Palin, Sterling, Paul et al the incident just simply doesn't carry the same weight...”
