Focusing public attention on emerging privacy and civil liberties issues

Federal Appeals Court Holds that Driver's Privacy Law Applies to Parking Tickets

The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals held that a federal driver’s privacy law prevented a Chicago suburb from issuing tickets that contained the driver's name, address, driver's license number, date of birth, height and weight. The Driver's Privacy Protection Act is a federal law passed after a California actress was murdered by a stalker who obtained personal information from the state department of motor vehicles. EPIC recently filed a "friend of the court" brief arguing that resellers of state driver records should be strictly liable under the Act. For more information, see EPIC: Driver’s Privacy.
