The Minnesota Supreme Court on Tuesday tossed a court case that threatened to delay a bond sale for the new Vikings stadium and throw the project off track.
Former Minneapolis mayoral candidate Doug Mann and the two other people who filed the court case argued that using Minneapolis sales tax to repay state bonds was unconstitutional because it circumvented a provision in the Minneapolis charter that required a referendum. However, the court ruled that it didn’t have a solution within its jurisdiction and that there was no "adequate remedy at law."
The ruling clears the way for the project to proceed, but that doesn’t mean stadium supporters and opponents called a truce. The battle over the stadium continued to rage on social media.
