Vikings hire Wells, Kaplan to help in Kluwe talks

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Vikings have hired the attorney who investigated the Miami Dolphins bullying scandal and another who played a prominent role in the fight for marriage equality to help in settlement talks with former punter Chris Kluwe.

Ted Wells, whose investigation in Miami found that guard Richie Incognito and two teammates engaged in persistent harassment of lineman Jonathan Martin, and Roberta Kaplan, who argued successfully in front of the Supreme Court last year that a portion of the Defense of Marriage Act was unconstitutional, were retained on Tuesday.

The two attorneys will engage with Kluwe, who accused the team of cutting him because of his outspoken support of gay marriage. The Vikings issued a 29-page summary of a report earlier this month that found no merit in that claim, but it did confirm Kluwe's accusation that special teams coach Mike Priefer made anti-gay remarks during practice.
