Sean Kelly reports:
The Boston Globe’s junk mail division bought drivers’ personal information from the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles, an unhappy ad recipient says in a federal class action. The man claims that Globe Direct, the direct mail unit of Boston Globe Media, violated the Drivers Privacy Protection Act.
Downing’s complaint does not state who provided Globe Direct with the information. He wants Globe Direct permanently enjoined from using class members’ personal information to send commercial advertisements.
