Wells Fargo: We’re Not ‘Photo-Bombing’ Vikings New Stadium
Minneapolis, MN (Learfield) -- Wells Fargo rejects calls for it to remove two big signs, 56-by-56 feet, on its downtown buildings in Minneapolis. A federal judge will hear oral arguments next Friday on the Vikings' request for those signs to come down.
The N-F-L team says the signs would be a "photo-bomb" next to its new U-S Bank Stadium home. Wells Fargo says the claims that its signs would irreparably injure the team are a legal argument never recognized in a court before.
U-S Bank paid millions to put its name on that stadium and having the name of a competing financial institution appear in the background could have an impact, though U-S Bank isn't part of the suit.
