Prof. Aprill discusses trust issues related to sale of LA Clippers with ABC News, KPCC-FM

Professor Ellen Aprill, the John E. Anderson Chair in Tax Law, was quoted by ABC News and KPCC about mental incapacity related to the Sterling family's sale of the NBA's Clippers.


"It is common for trust documents to include a provision for incapacity of a trustee and who becomes trustee if that is the case," Ellen Aprill, a professor specializing in tax law at Loyola Law School told KPCC.

Aprill said trusts – unlike wills – are secretive, so it's difficult to know exactly what the Sterlings' trust stipulates. However, she said it is common for trusts to include a provision that allows for two physicians to be able to declare a trustee mentally unfit.
