In New Jersey, an “epic” business partnership lawsuit

“There is no reason in the world for a case to be tried 20 years after it was filed,” said Judge Deanne Wilson, who said she knew of nothing matching the case in the New Jersey courts. The judge was highly critical of the conduct of the defendants, a real estate family led by Minnesota Vikings owner Zygmunt “Zygi” Wilf, which she found had misappropriated funds owed to longtime business partners.

  • The Wilf family sound like such sweethearts, I don’t think the state of Minnesota should wait 1 minute before getting into a $1 billion deal with them. What could go wrong?

  • I was an expert witness in a case in Federal court in New Jersey that was filed in 1985, related to a negligent audit of an insurance company at December 31, 1981, that finally went to trial in 2005. Following appeals, the case eventually ended in late 2009.
