Governor Dayton Alarmed By Vikings Owner Legal Woes

ST. PAUL (AP) – Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton is urging an authority overseeing the new Vikings stadium to take extra precautions as it finalizes an agreement with the team’s New Jersey-based owners given their legal woes back home.

In a statement Dayton’s office circulated Thursday, the governor said he is “deeply concerned” by a judges’ ruling against Zygi Wilf and his family in a fraud and breach of contract case. The judge’s ruling found that the Wilfs violated a civil racketeering law related to an apartment development deal.

The Wilfs won approval last year for a new taxpayer-aided football stadium. The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority is hammering out final contract details with Vikings owners before construction starts. Dayton says the authority needs assurances that representations made by the team owners are “truthful and accurate.”
