A former Minnesota high school coach is considering a wrongful termination lawsuit after she was fired. Four years ago, Lynn Bauman started the Farmington Community Education youth gymnastics program called Twist-N-Tumble. After she left to start her own gym in September, Farmington Gymnastics Center, she was fired from her job as the Farmington High School gymnastics coach.
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.
