BLOOMINGTON, Minn. - A Bloomington attorney says he has been retained by Michael Brodkorb to represent him in potential legal action against the Minnesota Senate.
Attorneys with Villaume & Schiek, P.A. announced Monday that they will work with Gregory Walsh with the law firm of Walsh & Gaertner, P.A., whose services Brodkorb had already retained, to determine whether a lawsuit against the state senate is warranted.
"As stated by Mr. Walsh, we've been ascertaining details surrounding events leading up to and immediately following Mr. Brodkorb's departure from the Minnesota Senate and our client has been reviewing his legal options," said attorney Phillip Villaume.
Brodkorb left his position as communications director for then-Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch just before news broke of an inappropriate relationship with a subordinate that led to Koch's resignation.
While no one has officially confirmed it, capitol insiders widely believe it was Brodkorb who Koch had been seeing.
"If the decision were made to purse legal action against the Minnesota Senate, former Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch would not be the defendant of any litigation," Villaume said in a written release.
