Lawsuit Filed Over Inappropriate Access to Drivers License Information

Posted: Updated:

A lawsuit has been filed against regional health and human service agencies in regard to alleged unauthorized access of the state Driver and vehicle Services database.

The litigation against Southwest Health and Human Services and Lincoln Lyon and Murray Human Services was filed in Blue Earth County earlier this month.

Attorney Scott Kelly with Farrish Johnson says the agencies have failed to comply with requests for public data-which seek the scope of the unauthorized database access.

Kelly tells KEYC News 12 more than three-thousand victims encompassed in this lawsuit may have had their records unlawfully accessed.

Kelly adds the goal is to obtain a settlement for those potential victims.
