Maslon Attorneys Assist in Defense Against Petition Regarding Vikings Stadium Funding
January 27, 2014
On January 13, 2014, the Minneapolis City Attorney called upon Maslon attorneys Bill Pentelovitch, David Herr, Mike McCarthy, Haley Schaffer, and John Duffey, along with paralegal Renee Lowder, to assist her on an urgent basis in defending against a Petition for Writ of Mandamus filed in the Minnesota Court of Appeals. The Petition sought to require the City to hold a referendum on whether or not the city should participate in the funding of the stadium, which is a condition of the authorizing legislation for the stadium. On January 15 the Maslon attorneys filed an Opposition to the Petition, on January 16 Maslon filed a motion to expedite consideration of its opposition, and on January 21 the Minnesota Court of Appeals dismissed the petition.
