The Independent Investigators released the following statement on Tuesday:
Chris Madel, Eric Magnuson, and Jennifer Robbins of Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi L.L.P. met with Chris Kluwe’s attorney, Clayton Halunen, July 14 at 3:30 p.m. to discuss the status of the independent investigation and to arrange a meeting between Halunen and Vikings representatives for Thursday, July 17 to continue that discussion. At no time during the July 14 meeting did Madel, Magnuson, or Robbins tell Halunen that the Vikings “would not provide a copy of the report to either Kluwe or the public” as Halunen’s press release of this morning states. At the meeting, Halunen agreed to meet with Vikings representatives on Thursday, and that meeting is still scheduled. It is anticipated that issues relating to the investigation will be discussed at that meeting.
