Judge to rule on Vikings-Wells Fargo sign clash by June 24

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The federal judge hearing the Minnesota Vikings' dispute with Wells Fargo over rooftop signs near the new stadium will rule on the case within three weeks.

U.S. District Judge Donovan Frank said Friday during a court hearing that he would issue his order no later than June 24, perhaps sooner.

U.S. Bank Stadium will formally open later this summer.

Vikings attorneys have labeled the signs a giant ''photo bomb'' of aerial images of the $1.1 billion venue and a breach of the contract with Wells Fargo, whose lawyers argued that the illuminated and raised signs are within the rights of the deal struck two years ago.

Frank earlier denied a request by the Vikings to have the signs covered or removed.
