Report: Vikings owners ordered to pay $84 million

The SportsXchange

Minnesota Vikings owners Zygi and Mark Wilf were ordered to pay at least $84 million in a fraud case, the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal reported.

The case involved a New Jersey real estate deal that dates back to 1992, according to the report, which notes that the Wilfs' situation could get worse. The verdict includes an award for punitive damages, and that means the case will be referred to prosecutors for a criminal investigation.

The Wilfs can still appeal the ruling.

The review found that the Wilfs committed fraud, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, and civil racketeering regarding the Wilfs' ability to pay for their portion of the new stadium that will be built for the Vikings. It was determined that they have the cash to satisfy their obligations.
