LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Los Angeles Superior Court judge Michael Levanas said he will rule Monday afternoon on whether club owner Donald Sterling can halt the $2 billion sale of the NBA's Los Angeles Clippers.

Sterling's estranged wife, Shelly Sterling, has asked Levanas to confirm her having the authority to sell the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer in the wake of racist remarks that Donald Sterling made.
