(CNN) - Donald Sterling and his estranged wife Shelly Sterling return to court Monday to continue their battle over the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers.

Shelly Sterling wants a judge to uphold her $2 billion deal to sell the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.

But Donald Sterling claims she doesn't have authority to sell the franchise he has owned since 1981.

Shelly Sterling and her lawyers argue Donald Sterling was aware of the negotiation and is mentally incapable of making decisions on his own.

The NBA ordered the sale of the team after Donald Sterling's recorded racist remarks to a companion were made public.
