Minnesota high court wants more info on Vikings case

Posted:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- The Minnesota Supreme Court has given sides in a Vikings stadium funding lawsuit until Thursday to answer two key questions.

In an order Tuesday, the high court says it wants clarity on whether justices have jurisdiction to intervene and whether people seeking to stop the stadium's construction have grounds to do so.

The court didn't say if it will call a full hearing into the lawsuit, which has already led state officials to postpone a $468 million bond sale. Stadium authority officials warn a drawn-out process could lead to crippling delays.

A former Minneapolis mayoral candidate and two other people sued late last week, saying the funding plan was unconstitutional.
