We wrote here about the Supreme Court ruling that will permit the sale of $468 million in state bonds to move forward for the new Vikings stadium.

Several people have asked if Associate Justice Alan Page took part in the high court's deliberations. The answer is: He did not.

At the end of the ruling, issued late Tuesday, it was noted that Page "took no part in the consideration or decision" of the case.

Page played for the Vikings from 1967 to 1978, and was part of the team's famed defensive line, the Purple People Eaters. A Hall of Famer, he finished his NFL career with the Chicago Bears.
