Just in time for the holiday weekend, taxpayers got their first bill from lawyers dealing with the Senate's messy employment issues. The Strib's Rachel Stassen-Berger reports: "The Minnesota Senate is discovering that defending itself from sex-scandal related legal threats is expensive. On Friday, Senate officials disclosed that they owe $46,150 for three months of legal fees and the bill will only grow. The bill from Dayle Nolan, a private attorney the Senate hired to defend it against ex-employee Michael Brodkorb, and her firm only goes through March of this year. Those costs do not yet include all the time Nolan sat in hours of Senate ethics committees, where a former Senate leader was accused of mishandling the sex scandal, and come before Brodkorb has even filed a suit in a court room."
