Doug Mann, a left wing activist who ran for Mayor of Minneapolis, recently attempted to stop the new Vikings stadium project by seeking a writ of prohibition to prevent the sale of bonds to finance the project. On January 21, the Minnesota Supreme Court issued its ruling (click here to view the entire document) which said, in summary, Doug Mann and his co-plaintiffs have no case.
In the ruling's only footnote, the court noted there might not be any claim the plaintiffs can make "upon which relief can be granted."
Unlike my fellow bloggers Hawthorne Hawkman and The Deets, JNS blog has no passionate feelings about the stadium one way or another, but it appears the newsworthy recent ruling has not yet been promulgated online. The most recent media coverage was by City Pages, "Doug Mann explains how his lawsuit could derail Vikings Stadium."
That didn't happen. That didn't even come CLOSE to happening.
