Vikings owner sued in New Jersey over real estate company

FREEHOLD, N.J. (AP) A co-owner of the NFL's Minnesota Vikings is facing another lawsuit over real estate dealings in New Jersey.

Zygi Wilf was sued Thursday along with his father by the estate of a former partner who allegedly was cut out of a real estate deal by the Wilfs.

The son and daughter of the late Meyer Gold say he was a one-third owner of the company, called Amchu, but received nothing from the lease of the property or rental income that averages $1,600 per month per unit for the 122-unit adult residential complex.

An attorney for the Wilfs calls the lawsuit ''ridiculous and meritless.''

In 2013 a New Jersey judge ordered Zygi Wilf, his brother and cousin to pay about $100 million over a broken deal to develop an apartment complex.
