Judge orders development opponents to post $10M

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A Hennepin County judge has ordered activists suing the city of Minneapolis over a proposed downtown park to post a $10 million surety bond.

Judge Mel Dickstein said Friday the plaintiffs must post the bond before next Thursday.

One of the plaintiffs, Paul Ostrow, tells the Star Tribune ( ) that won't be possible, and they are exploring their appeal options.

The group had argued that only the city's Park and Recreation Board has the authority to own and operate a park. The park would be adjacent to the new Vikings stadium, which is the centerpiece of a $400 million development deal.

The city says the lawsuit was threatening the entire project. They requested the surety bond to cover any losses if the lawsuit fails.
