Back in January 2010, a potential class action lawsuit was filed. As reported in the Southeast Texas Record at the time:
If a recently filed class action is successful, each driver in Arkansas may receive $2,500 from companies that may have obtained their personal information illegally through the Arkansas Department of Licensing.
The class action alleges that several companies violated the Driver Privacy Protection Act by obtaining personal information contained in motor vehicle records maintained by the state.
On behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated, seven plaintiffs filed a class action against Arkansas Automobile Dealers’ Association, TRW Target Marketing and The Recall Center on Jan. 14 in the Texarkana Division of the Western District of Arkansas.
Now Law360 reports that a federal judge has certified the class. A subscription is required to read the article, though.
