Clippers owner pays $2.7 million to settle bias lawsuit

Print More

L.A. Clippers owner Donald  Sterling will pay $2.7 million to settle claims that he shut out African Americans, Hispanics and families with children from renting apartments on his vast network of Los Angeles area properties.

Had Sterling not struck the deal, The Los Angeles Times and the Associated Press report the trial would have aired expert testimony showing Sterlings’ Koreatown rental practices to be racist.

If approved by a federal judge, the deal would amount to the largest apartment housing bias settlement brokered by the Justice Department.
