Continued: Wilfs slapped with $103 million judgment, ordered to post $110 million appeal bond

“The Wilfs have ample assets to cover the costs,” Harvey said.

Minnesota opponents of the stadium deal from both major political parties said the issue is more about character than the Wilfs’ ability to pay damages and legal fees in addition to their share of the stadium costs.

“The stadium deal is done,” said state Sen. John Marty, DFL-Roseville. “I am more disappointed in the size of this judgment. These are not the kind of people we like to do business with.”

Republican state Sen. Dave Thompson of Lakeville, a candidate for governor, said he hoped that Wilson’s findings of guilt, combined with the size of the judgment, will provide the state with leverage “to get more of the Wilfs’ skin in the game” for the stadium’s construction.

“We need to lean on the Wilfs to make it a better deal,” he said.
