(St. Paul, MN) -- The Minnesota Supreme Court is being asked to intervene in a lawsuit challenging the funding for the new Minnesota Vikings stadium. The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority filed a motion with the state's highest court yesterday after three people filed a challenge last week, challenging bond sales were illegal because Minnesota tax dollars were already going to the project. The state planned to start selling 486-milliol dollars in bonds yesterday. The timeline for the stadium is very tight, and legal delays could result in the Vikings not opening the 2016 NFL season in their new home.
