Duluth sees 8th privacy protection lawsuit

The eighth lawsuit in recent months has been filed against the city of Duluth based on allegations that city employees violated the Driver’s Privacy Protection Act.

This lawsuit, filed by former North Branch police officer Kelly Marie Engebretson, accuses Duluth Police Department officers and employees of the St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office of accessing her driver’s license records. Duluth is among 38 cities and counties in Minnesota named in the suit.

More than 50 similar lawsuits have been brought against law enforcement agencies statewide and at least 1,247 claims against 229 Minnesota cities, according to Tom Grundhoefer, general counsel for the League of Minnesota Cities.
