But her brothers-who hold ownership interest in the team, inherited from their father-reportedly looked to hold an emergency election for new directors this week and submitted a list with four prospective names that did not include Jeanie.
The Buss brothers had apparently planned to elect a new board that would have excluded Jeanie.
However, the restraining order sent a clear message that the plan would not work, so the brothers withdrew their request, and Jeanie Buss also withdrew the temporary restraining order.
"I can tell you that both Jim Buss and Johnny Buss had hoped that any issues that might arise would be handled within the family", Sacks said.
Hopefully, Jeanie and her brothers could find a peaceful way to negotiate their family business without it being detrimental to Lakers basketball. But the family trust states that Jeanie is the controlling owner, and since the controlling owner must be a director, removing her from the board would be a violation of the trust. But, through a lawyer, they are denying that any of this was meant to oust Jeanie and are claiming that they've just voted to re-elect her as controlling owner.
"Everything she's trying to do could be undone", Streisand told the LA Times. Jim feels scorned. Fighting the decision and attempting to overthrow Jeanie throws fuel on the fire.
