Minnesota Senate Attorneys Want Brodkorb Suit Tossed

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A federal magistrate is weighing whether to dismiss the lawsuit of a fired Minnesota Senate aide.

Magistrate Arthur Boylan heard arguments Wednesday over the aftermath from an improperly filed list of illicit Capitol affairs. It came in the case of Michael Brodkorb, who is trying to prove he was treated unfairly when fired for his affair with the GOP Senate leader. Senate attorneys say the fact a list alleging other Capitol affairs became public makes it tougher for them to present a defense. They want the case thrown out or some evidence excluded as the lawsuit heads toward a potential trial.

At a minimum, Senate attorney Gayle Nolan says Brodkorb’s side should pay attorney’s fees for dealing with what she called “a fiasco.”

Brodkorb’s lawyers say the disclosure was accidental.
