Suit contends fan limits at Minnesota prep sporting events were set illegally


October 6, 2020


The crowd sat in the stands for the East Ridge vs. Mounds View boys' soccer game on Aug. 27. Groups were distanced from each other, with some wearing masks and some not.

A lawsuit against the Minnesota State High School League in September, asserting the league had failed to follow its bylaws when it moved football and volleyball to the spring, has been revived.

Filed on behalf of four high school athletes, the suit now contends the league failed to follow its stated purpose and bylaws by not adhering to recent Minnesota Department of Health guidance on the limits of fan attendance during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The suit, taking into account league board meetings on Sept. 21 and Oct. 1, claims the league engaged in "arbitrary and unlawful decisionmaking'' in prohibiting fans at indoor venues and allowing no more than 250 people at outside events.
