New York, NY, May 13, 2014 – Scarinci Hollenbeck attorney Anthony R. Caruso, Esq., appeared Tuesday, May 13, 2014 on the Morning Show for PIX Channel 11 TV in New York City, in order to offer his legal insight into the recent Donald Sterling interview with Anderson Cooper.

Sterling appeared on Cooper’s show on CNN and broke down in tears as he apologized for his recent racial comments.  He also, surprisingly, took some shots at Magic Johnson.  Mr. Caruso commented that “Sterling made several mistakes in his crisis management approach.  We advise our clients to never delay in getting your message out to the public, and to do so in a professional and well planned manner.” Caruso continued, “Despite other commentary to the contrary, the NBA owners can force him to sell the team and do not have to allow his spouse to remain as the owner.” To view the entire WPIX11 televised interview use this link: http://pix11.com/2014/05/13/discussing-donald-sterlings-apology/#axzz31bYVXSE7.
