Attorney Targeted by Police Database Snooping

Just one incident in a growing scandal

|

Brooke Bass spent her legal career looking out for the best interests of police officers.

They were looking out for her, too, her lawyer says—but in a different way.

In the past eight years, more than 100 entities across Minnesota—nearly all of them law enforcement—accessed Bass's private driver's license information more than 700 times, her attorney said.

That would make her the subject of the biggest privacy breach to date in the state's increasingly broad and increasingly expensive license-data debacle.
