The case has caused nervousness because of the stadium’s already tight construction schedule. A $468 million bond sale that was supposed to take place Monday. But finance officials postponed it to deal with the last-minute lawsuit.

The bond proceeds are needed to cover the public’s portion of the new $1 billion football stadium being constructed in Minneapolis.
