"Jeanie Buss has thwarted an effort by her brothers, Jim and Johnny, to oust her as the Lakers president and controlling owner as the behind the scenes battle for control of the franchise moved into the courtroom.

Attorneys for Jeanie Buss sought a temporary restraining order in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Friday to prevent the brothers from holding a meeting next week to elect a new board of directors for the team that didn’t include her. In order to be the controlling owner, she has to be a director.

“This is no doubt the beginning and not the end of the game-playing,” Adam Streisand, the attorney for Jeanie Buss, told The Times. “They don’t have a legal leg to stand on. This is a legal strategy doomed for failure.”

The family trust that controls the team can elect three of the board’s five members."

There was little doubt Jim would go without a fight. Doesn't seem like his legal chances are very good though.

[Judge to Jim Buss]: Sir, please take off your hat please.

[Jim Buss]: I will not.

This is sounding like the Lakers will eventually be forced sold.

Please just sell the team. I'm so sick of this whole family (outside of Jerry, of course).

Jim Buss is a prick. He failed at everything he has done and now trying to hurt the Lakers franchise even more. I hate the guy.

Jeanie is worse than Jim will ever be.

I agree she needs to go. But I don't think he'll accomplish it this way.

The court won't say either. The court interprets law, contracts, agreements, etc.
