Michael Brodkorb is appealing the decision to reject his claim. Brodkorb's lawyer, Phil Villaume, tells Minnesota Public Radio News the matter is privileged and private.
Michael Brodkorb filed a gender discrimination complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, a precursor to legal action.
