Vikings Stadium Approval Delayed 14 Aug 13

A sports panel has delayed the final approval of contracts for the Minnesota Vikings’ new stadium until it can review litigation involving team owner Zygi Wilf and his family. The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority had planned to consider the final agreements August 23rd. But the authority said Tuesday those agreements will be considered at a future meeting. The panel has also retained a law firm to head a group to conduct the review. A judge ruled last week the Wilf family committed fraud and breach of contract in a case stemming from an apartment development in New Jersey. The Stadium Authority says that the planned October groundbreaking for the nearly $1-billion stadium is still on schedule.
