Women File Suit For License Records Breach
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.February 6, 2013
Four women have filed a lawsuit against a Minnesota Department of National Resources employee who allegedly accessed their driver’s license information, Minnesota Public Radio reports. The lawsuit is the third filed in response to the department’s announcement that the employee accessed records on 5,000 people. The employee has since been terminated. Meanwhile, a former Minnesota police officer who sued the Minnesota Department of Public Safety after fellow officers allegedly looked at her private data has reached an agreement with the state that would change how the driver’s license database is monitored, Pioneer Press reports.
