Is Sterling's Life Worth Insuring?

Donald-Sterling

On the face of it, Donald Sterling could be a very attractive life insurance candidate.  The 80-year-old Sterling’s net worth is $1.9 billion while the Los Angeles Clippers are worth around $430 million by itself.  The premium for his policy would probably be very high, leading to a huge case for a life insurance producer willing to take the risk. 

However, do his more reprehensible qualities pose too many underwriting challenges?  His many legal entanglements, involvement with prostitutes, and stress-induced maladies from a bitter marriage may just be too much.

See Steven Kobrin, Would You Sell Life Insurance to Donald Sterling?, Producers Web, May 2, 2014.

Thank you for publishing, Gerry! Question for you: do you think an attorney should take him as a client?
