Two months after a "young, single" female KSTP producer sued Minnesota government agencies for alleged driver's license data snooping, KSTP anchor Jessica Miles is doing the same.

Miles alleges that state officials illegally looked up her data almost 1,400 times, a number that the Star Tribune reports is believed to be the highest number of any litigant to file suit against the state so far.

But perhaps the most troubling aspect of Miles's lawsuit, which also includes her husband, KSTP digital news manger Cory Kampschroer (he alleges his information was accessed nearly 100 times), is what happened to Miles after her data was looked up.

Following the breaches, Miles claims her TCF bank account was hacked and her suburban home became the subject of police officers' intense curiosity.

From the Strib:
[Kenneth Fukuda, Miles's attorney] said in an interview that officers from different law enforcement agencies "monitored" Miles by driving past her house, and she believes they got her address through the illegal accesses. He said that she lives in a Twin Cities suburb where law enforcement vehicles in the neighborhood are otherwise infrequent.
If Brooke Bass's lawsuit against the state is any indication, Miles and her husband might end up seeking up to $14 million in damages. Fukuda serves as the lawyer for both women, and in Bass's case he said he planned to sue the state for $10,000 for each data breach.

I bought her previous house - after the initial accesses.  What does that mean??  Should I be suing her and the govt. for scrutiny and feeling terrorized by default?  $14M??  I really need to get on the phone to my attorney.

At some point the American people will wake up and realize that this is the sort of behaviour that law enforcement engages in every day, in every town in this nation.

I just sent in a request for my DVS records and in less than a day of sending in the mail, I received a call from a call Selina asking what it was that I needed? I paid the required $10.00 and checked Certified Records Copy(complete copy). I called back and at one time(I was put back to menu) a gentleman said he was unsure who this was and he wad unsure of what she needed being it is known "complete copy" is "complete copy". No question needed! Waiting for a call back-when???? This seemed fishy-gentleman I asked with did't get it either. Jessica....

I hope she prevails and is paid a fortune. This is so creepy, immoral, and oh, illegal.

So I can call the State and "have them" tell me how many times my address etc has been accessed by state agencies etc.., (without hiring an attorney to do it?) I think that is what what Kelly is asking?

good for them. hope the state goes after the employees that were snooping. at the federal level, when you run an NCIC check on someone, you have to enter your name as the searcher or whoever is requesting the search. heads should roll.

You request it from the Department of Public Safety, though I don't know the exact process or protocol.

So how does it work if you aren't local 'celebrity'?And think about how many times police have done this kind of b.s. to rest of us.I'm more concerned about how you can access who has access your info.Id love to find out if they have accessed my info without cause,especially with how much these high profile people figure their privacy is worth,I feel like mine is worth just as much.

And people wonder why there is grave concern over the NSA revelations in the past few months?.....because as we know the omnipotent agencies of "good" would never abuse their power to; enrich themselves, manipulate/blackmail individuals and or groups - I'm curious to know what the motive was for the snooping?

If this is true, some one needs to be fired, not paid $14 million.

Yeah I mean if a large group of people happen to be abusing their power than it is pretty likely that there is more incidences than one.

How does a person look up or know how many times their information was accessed?

@Taire Marie Nobody cares about your information, honey.

@digitalprotocol So because someone is on TV, they deserve to have their privacy violated?

Stop sniffing glue.

@Nicole Schumacher Police officers are 236% more likely to rape than those in the general population, and the majority of victims raped by police officers are minor children. FBI Unified Crime Statistics Report [2010]. In an anonymous university survey, 40% of police officers admitted to abusing their spouses or children in the past 6 months. This survey was performed back in the 1990's, too. Anyone care to wager that the police have become more violent deranged in the last 20 years?

@Kelly Anderson Kelly, I believe suspicion grew when Jessica and I presume Cory realized someone was keeping tabs on their house.....or movements, being that she's in the public eye there, stalkers come out of the woodwork - now imagine if someone used your personal information to change something as important as your bank card, etc.? One would then find a means to figure out who and what information could be used to track and spy on them

@ajlalk3 Your ability to engage in cognitive dissonance is truly remarkable, sir. Even more so given the fact that the very story you comment on regards illegal access of the DMV database by numerous law enforcement agencies and personnel.

@digitalprotocol @ajlalk3 I'm curious as to why gold is the preferred paint of paint huffers.  Are there special compounds in the gold coloring?
