The board overseeing the new Vikings stadium meets again Wednesday to talk about Vikings owner Zygi Wilf.

The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority hired a lawyer to look at Wilf’s financial history after a New Jersey judge found the family business committed fraud. That case is raising some questions on the Wilf’s ability to pay for their part of the new stadium.

The Wilf family is trying to keep its information private. The Star Tribune reports there’s a hearing next week in New Jersey about whether to seal the family’s net worth and other financial records.

The Wilfs will learn later this month how much they must pay for that civil fraud and racketeering conviction.
