Morristown, N.J. • A New Jersey real estate mogul who is also the principal owner of the Minnesota Vikings and two of his relatives systematically cheated their partners out of their rightful share of revenues from an apartment complex, a judge ruled Monday in a 21-year legal battle.

Zygmunt "Zygi" Wilf, his brother Mark and cousin Leonard committed fraud, breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty and violated New Jersey's civil racketeering law, the judge concluded.

The family members were sued by partners in a 764-unit apartment complex in Montville, Ada Reichmann and her brother Josef Halpern, who had been the complex's longtime manager. Reichmann, of Toronto, and Halpern, of Brooklyn, are seeking more than $50 million.

Superior Court Judge Deanne Wilson said she will announce the rest of her ruling and the damages in the next two weeks.
