I love the delicious irony of people who are against the stadium due to money are foolishly filing futile, last-minute frivolous suits that will do nothing but drive up the costs. They should be held accountable for any delay costs.

The lawsuit underscores the shameful conduct of former Minneapolis Mayor Rybak in leading the effort to deny the voters of Minneapolis the referendum to which they were legally entitled under the City of Minneapolis Charter. The City of Minneapolis should initiate a formal investigation of Rybak's conduct in this matter. Why did he violate the City of Minneapolis Charter in order to get Zygi Wilf a stadium subsidized at the expense of Minneapolis taxpayers?

"Legal challenge imperils Vikings stadium opening, Downtown East project"

"Stadium financing imperils Minneapolis transparency and accountability, future fiscal solvency."

You know it's going to happen - the stadium will be built, and tax payers will foot most of the bill - just get on with it....

1 Minneapolitan is up in arms and is basically throwing a toddler-fit over the project. Let it go buddy, let it go.

There will actually be a hearing rather than a quick dismissal? Happy to see that the people of Minneapolis will finally get their day in court. Their City Charter deserves at least that much respect.
