LEGAL MATTERS: In Minneapolis, Janet Moore in a front-page piece reports property owner Minneapolis Venture yesterday filed suit in Hennepin County District Court against the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority, "claiming that negotiations over the land next to the stadium site have been 'perplexing and unproductive.'" The suit "seeks clarity from a judge on whether the above-ground plaza and its coveted underground parking garage are part of the massive stadium’s reach." MSFA Chair Michele Kelm-Helgen said that the suit "will not delay the stadium’s already-tight construction timeline, which calls for groundbreaking this fall, and completion" by the '16 NFL season (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 8/21).
