Gift returns: Sterling wife wants house, $1 million

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A lawyer for the wife of ex-Clipper's owner Donald Sterling says his former mistress should surrender a house and more than $1 million in money he lavished on her.

Attorney Pierce O'Donnell said Friday in closing arguments in Los Angeles Superior Court that gifts given to V. Stiviano belonged to Shelly Sterling as community property from her lengthy marriage.

O'Donnell says Sterling deserves about $2.8 million based Stiviano's admissions about gifts from Donald Sterling.

Stiviano's lawyer, Mac Nehoray, says there was no direct link between Donald Sterling's bank accounts and Stiviano. He also says the law does not allow Shelly Sterling to go after a third party for her husband's breach of duties.

Stiviano has denied having an affair with Sterling.

The judge didn't indicate when he will rule.
