A young lady by the name of Anne Marie Rasmusson just won a huge--huge--settlement against law enforcement officers, and the agencies for which they work, for looking at her driver's license information.
In what could be a precedent-setting legal decision, Rasmusson's settlement could open up a wave of lawsuits against anyone who accesses the official, and presumably private, records of anyone. This is not just about someone who was looked at because she was attractive; this is about making her notorious through a private law enforcement system.
How bad was it? This bad:
The numbers were astounding: One hundred and four officers in 18 different agencies from around the state had accessed her driver's license record 425 times in what could be one of the largest private data breaches by law enforcement in history.Rasmusson deserves every penny she gets.
