A New Jersey appeals court has declined to hear arguments made by Zygi Wilf and his family against publicly revealing its net worth, according to a report from nj.com, the web site of The Newark Star-Ledger newspaper..

The Wilfs, who own the Vikings, have appealed a ruling by New Jersey Superior Court Judge Deanne Wilson,  who ordered them to make the financial disclosure and ruled the Wilfs must pay $84.5 million in damages to two business partners in a New Jersey apartment complex.

Cuting invasion of privacy and that their family members may be targeted, the Wilfs have opposed release of their net worth.

The appeals court did allow the family's net worth to remain sealed until a final judgment is issued in the lawsuit. A family attorney told The Star-Ledger that he'll ask the judge to delay the release until the full appeal of the case.
