Dayton: Supreme Court Must Act Quickly On Stadium

By Sara Boyd

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Gov. Mark Dayton says he hopes the Minnesota Supreme Court will act quickly on a lawsuit that’s trying to block the state from selling construction bonds for the new Vikings stadium.

Dayton says Tuesday that he sees the whole project at risk if the court doesn’t act quickly. Three Minneapolis residents filed suit just over a week ago claiming that the stadium’s funding plan is unconstitutional.

The lawsuit forced the state to at least temporarily hold off on a bond sale to cover a portion of the $1 billion stadium. Project planners say if money from those bonds is not available soon that it could throw off the project’s timelines and drive up costs.

The high court has not yet indicated when it might rule or call a hearing.
