Vikings ‘Photo Bomb’ Sign Suit Against Wells Fargo now in Federal Court

December 31, 2015

The Minnesota Vikings’ “photo-bombing” lawsuit against Wells Fargo has been moved to federal court.

Last week the team sued Wells Fargo in Hennepin County District Court, saying the bank is using illuminated rooftop signs on two buildings near the Vikings’ new stadium to “photo bomb” the facility, which is named for competitor U.S. Bank.

The Star Tribune reports that Well Fargo asked that the lawsuit be moved to federal court. The bank has not yet filed a response to the lawsuit, and no hearing has been scheduled.

The Vikings claim the mounted and illuminated rooftop signs Wells Fargo is installing don’t conform to an agreement. Wells Fargo has said the bank believes its signs are legal.

Arguments on the suit had been set for Wednesday in Hennepin County District Court.

    If the WF signs are not against city/state laws or ordinances - how can another property owner say what type of signage can go on property they don't own?

    So the Vikings want to pay nothing for the right, but be able to restrict what other private property owners can put on their buildings?

    Considering how banks often treat their 'customers' they should be glad it is only a photo 'bomb'.
