MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilf is fighting efforts to make his family reveal its net worth in a court proceeding, saying an “anti-wealth bias” is at play.

Court papers filed in a New Jersey case argue the Wilfs shouldn’t have to publicly disclose their fortune. It stems from a civil case in which the Wilfs have been ordered to pay $84.5 million to a spurned business partner.

The Wilfs contend they aren’t seeking special treatment but that forcing them to bare their finances for all to see is unfair. The court papers contend they could be targets of physical attack or extortion.

A judge has said the family should disclose its net worth, but offered the chance for appeal first.
