A judge has agreed to delay requiring the family of Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilf from paying two business partners that the Wilfs defrauded of $84.5 million from a New Jersey apartment complex.
    
The Newark Star-Ledger reports that Judge Deanne Wilson delayed requiring the Wilfs to give the money to Josef Halpern and Ada Reichmann until the Wilfs' appeal of her ruling is complete.
    
The judge also awarded the former partners $15.1 million to cover attorney's fees. Wilson estimates that it will take three years to resolve the Wilfs' appeal and set an interest rate of 2.25 percent. The Wilfs would have to pay more than $106 million if they lose an appeal that takes three years.
    
The trial lasted two years. The lawsuit was filed 21 years ago.
