MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A former Minnesota Senate aide who was fired over an affair with the chamber’s majority leader is narrowing his lawsuit against the state.

Michael Brodkorb was fired last year after Senate leaders discovered his affair with then-Majority Leader Amy Koch. Brodkorb is suing the state over his dismissal.

In legal papers filed Thursday, the two sides agreed that Brodkorb would drop several invasion-of-privacy claims related to media reports that he had filed unsuccessfully for unemployment benefits.

His attorney, Phil Villaume, said he and his client decided to narrow the lawsuit to the defamation and gender discrimination claims.
