    Star Tribune: Mpls. attorney claims she was ‘oogled by scores of men’: Wins settlement of $32,500 from Minneapolis (Dec 18 2013)

    On Tuesday, however, a federal lawsuit was filed by another female officer against about 50 municipalities, including Minneapolis.


    The suit in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis by attorneys for Amy Krekelberg, a Minneapolis police officer, alleges that officers with more than 40 municipalities illegally viewed her private driver’s license data nearly 1,000 times since 2003.


    Officers accessed her data 575 times through the city of Minneapolis, the suit says. It also points to 72 unpermitted accesses by Roseville officers, and 99 times by officers with Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, where she used to work, among other alleged breaches of her privacy. It names the 50 municipalities, along with top state public safety officials and supervisors.


    Lorenz Fett, one of Krekelberg’s attorneys, said she was named the 2010 Minneapolis Park Police officer of the year, and he believes that professional curiosity by other officers sparked perhaps many, if not most, of the improper data accesses.
