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'
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.
