The Minnesota Senate agreed Thursday to settle a lawsuit brought by a former staffer who was fired after he was found to be having an affair with the chamber’s majority leader. The Senate agreed to pay Michael Brodkorb $30,000, an amount that chamber leaders said was equal to severance offered Brodkorb before he was fired in December 2011. He had been seeking more than $500,000.
