MnDNR, former manager reach settlement in defamation lawsuit

Email

MINNEAPOLIS -- A former enforcement manager with the state Department of Natural Resources has settled a defamation lawsuit with the agency for $250,000.

Cathy Hamm worked for the DNR for 35 years. She was fired in 2008 following a game-warden conference the previous year.

The controversy began when a legislative audit of the conference blamed the DNR for misspending $300,000 in taxpayer money and staff time.
