Senate panel set to approve next Brodkorb-related legal bill

Posted by: Rachel E. Stassen-Berger under Minnesota legislature, Minnesota state senators Updated: June 26, 2013 - 6:06 PM

The state’s legal bills for a lawsuit brought by ex-Minnesota Senate employee Michael Brodkorb have topped $200,000.

The latest bill, which is to be approved for payment on Wednesday, of $27,700 will add to the more than $196,000 the state has already paid.

Brodkorb is suing the Senate over his 2011 dismissal, which came in the wake of his affair with then-Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch. He is claiming gender discrimination, alleging that female employees who had affairs were permitted to keep legislative jobs.
