Minn. Senate gets $91k invoice in Brodkorb case

September 9, 2013
Associated Press

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Senate's latest invoice for a legal dispute with a former staff member shows $91,600 in expenses over three months.

That invoice, to be reviewed at a hearing Monday, brings the taxpayer costs in the case above $300,000. The Senate is paying a private law firm to defend the chamber against a lawsuit by fired GOP aide Michael Brodkorb. He says he was wrongly terminated after his affair with a top senator was exposed.

The case is on track for a possible trial next summer and is in the discovery phase.

Brodkorb has not revealed the amount he is paying his legal team.

The Senate has asked a judge to force Brodkorb to pay some of the public's legal fees because of mistakes his side made this summer.
