Data breach prosecutions 'very rare,' expert saysby Tom Crann, Minnesota Public Radio
ST. PAUL, Minn. — Criminal charges have been dismissed against a Minneapolis city employee who allegedly used driver's license information inappropriately.
The Star Tribune reports that prosecutors cited problems with the state law getting in the way of prosecuting the case.
That follows the high-profile case of a former DNR employee, who now faces charges for accessing the data for hundreds of drivers. Last week a state auditor's report found inappropriate access to driver's license data was widespread in law enforcement.
Bill McGeveran, law professor at the University of Minnesota Law School, speaks with MPR News.
