Possible Suit Against Counties  allegedly charging local residents thousands more than out-of-state data brokers

Local taxpayers pay up to a dollar per page for copies. Commercial data brokers pay  a dollar for ten thousand copies.

 

 
Two lawsuits seeking class action status have been filed against Georgia-based Choicepoint Inc. and Massachusetts-based Reed Elsevier Inc., the parent company of LexisNexis. The suits were filed in regards to how the state allows public access to drivers' personal information. According the suit, the companies have been obtaining records from the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, which is violates the federal Driver Privacy Protection Act. The records include people's names, addresses, birth dates and other personal information.

The federal privacy law prohibits the plaintiffs from suing the state, so they have therefore filed the suits against the companies who are buying the records.
