Minnesota top court dismisses stadium suit
January 21, 2014
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota's Supreme Court has dismissed a lawsuit challenging the funding plan for a new Vikings football stadium.
The decision Tuesday clears a late obstacle that threatened to hold up construction and delay a planned 2016 opening. Minnesota finance officials postponed a $468 million bond sale while the case was pending.
It was filed Jan. 10 by a former Minneapolis mayoral candidate who argued the stadium funding was unconstitutional. Taxpayers are footing about half the cost.
The stadium will be built on the Metrodome site. State lawmakers authorized construction in 2012.
