Court ruling allows stadium finance to proceed
ST. PAUL -- The Minnesota Supreme Court this afternoon tossed out a lawsuit challenging the financing of a new Vikings stadium, averting a situation that Gov. Mark Dayton said could have stopped construction.
Justices dismissed the suit that sought to prohibit the state from selling bonds to finance the downtown Minneapolis stadium. Earlier today, Dayton said that if the high court did not rule immediately, that dreams of stadium construct could be “destroyed.”
