An employee working as a child support officer is accused of making more than 4,000 queries without legitimate cause in a driver and vehicle services database between 2010 and 2011.  Photographs, addresses, and driving records may have been exposed.

UPDATE (10/04/2013): A $2 million settlement has been proposed to end a class action lawsuit.  An insurance trust representing Minnesota counties will pay $500 to the named plaintiffs who initially brought the suit and those who had their information viewed for illegitimate purposes will receive a share of the money "based on the number of times they were illegitimately searched."
