Minnesota families sue MSHSL over 'arbitrary' limits on fans
October 8, 2020
FOX 9) - Four families of Minnesota High School fall athletes have filed a lawsuit against the state high school league for what they call "arbitrary" limits on fans at sporting events this fall.
The lawsuit alleges the MSHSL's limits are more restrictive than the Minnesota Department of Health's guidance for events, specifically the banning of spectators from girls' volleyball matches and the limit of 250 spectators at football games.
Volleyball and Football were both delayed to the spring season earlier this year as the pandemic hit Minnesota, but last week, the MSHSL reversed course, allowing the seasons to play this fall.
