Another high-profile lawsuit involving a rich guy named Donald was settled Friday when the NBA’s battle with Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling came to an end.

The L.A. Times reports that Sterling and the league settled their legal battle over the $2 billion sale of the team to Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed, but the Times reports that Sterling’s lawyer, Bobby Samini, confirmed the settlement in an email, saying, “Donald is pleased with the outcome and is looking forward to focusing on future endeavors.”

In 2014, the NBA banned Sterling for life and fined him $2.5 million for making racist comments that were recorded and released to the public. Sterling’s wife, Shelley, worked with the league to engineer the sale of the team to Ballmer, but Sterling filed an antitrust suit in federal and California state court, alleging that the league and Commissioner Adam Silver, among others, “engaged in a wide-ranging conspiracy to remove him as owner of the Clippers.” The suit was dismissed in March. Sterling filed an appeal, only to miss last month’s deadline to file an opening brief, per the Times.
