Vikings owner appeals $100M NJ court ruling

Posted:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilf is moving to invalidate a court decision that demands his family pay $100 million in damages and legal fees over a broken business deal.

The Wilfs formally appealed a ruling that found the real estate developers committed fraud, violated civil racketeering laws and deprived a former business partner of contractual payments. It extends a case that has been working its way through the courts for 21 years.

Wilf attorney Peter Harvey told The Associated Press on Thursday that the trial judge "badly mismanaged" the case. He argues there were multiple errors of law, a failure to limit the case's scope and conflicts of interest.

An attorney for a key plaintiff declined to comment. Briefs from both sides are due throughout the spring.
