A Minneapolis judge’s ruling appears to have cleared the way for President Max Winter of the Minnesota Vikings to sell his one-third interest in the National Football League club to the buyers of his choice.

Winter, 81, wants to sell his share in the football team to Minneapolis financier Irwin Jacobs, Minnesota Twins’ owner Carl Pohlad and former Viking quarterback Fran Tarkenton for $25 million.

But other owners of the team, John Skoglund and a trusteeship representing the E. William Boyer estate, sought to prevent the sale, claiming that, under the right-of-first-refusal agreements, Winter would have to offer them his stock first.
