  • The Minnesota Vikings say a lawsuit against their ownership group will in no way affect the team's finances or plans for a new stadium.
    Vikings vice president of public affairs Lester Bagley says a 21-year legal fight between Zygi, Mark and Leonard Wilf and their partners in an apartment complex in New Jersey is "a private business matter."
    A judge ruled on Monday that the Wilfs committed fraud, breach of contract and fiduciary duty, and had violated New Jersey's civil racketeering law.
    The family was sued by partners in a 764-unit apartment complex in Montville. The partners claimed they were cheated of their fair share. They are seeking more than $50 million in damages.
    The judge will announce the rest of the ruling and damages in the next two weeks.
