ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The attorney for a former police union lawyer in Minnesota says his client's private driver's license information was accessed more than 700 times.
It could be the largest privacy breach so far in the Department of Public Safety driver's license database case.
An attorney for Brooke Bass says in the past eight years, more than 100 entities in Minnesota, mostly law enforcement agencies, accessed her private license information. Bass spent six years as a lawyer for Law Enforcement Labor Services, the state's largest police union.
Attorney Kenn Fukuda tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press the volume and scope of the inquiries went far beyond legitimate purposes.
At least nine federal lawsuits have been filed relating to misuse of the driver and vehicle services database. All but one target government entities.
