MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) The board overseeing the new Minnesota Vikings stadium says a financial review has cleared up questions about the team owners' ability to pay their share.

The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority's report that came out Friday was launched after a New Jersey judge came down on the Wilf family for fraud in a lawsuit tied to an unrelated development deal.

The inquiry sought to make sure the Wilfs could pay the team's $477 million share of the nearly $1 billion stadium cost.

The report finds the Wilfs were involved in numerous lawsuits over the years, but the New Jersey lawsuit was the only one of its kind.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell also submitted a letter saying the league is committed to fulfilling its obligations under the stadium use agreement.
