Panel delays action on Vikings stadium contracts

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A sports panel has delayed 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 Aug. 23. But the authority said Tuesday those agreements will be considered at a future meeting.

The panel has retained Peter Carter of the Dorsey & Whitney 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 Star Tribune reports the chair of the Stadium Authority, Michele Kelm-Helgen, says the planned October groundbreaking for the nearly $1 billion stadium is still on schedule.
