Eric Roper reports:
A former cop who accused officers across the metro of snooping into her driver’s license file is poised to garner about $665,000 in settlements from Twin Cities municipalities.
The payments represent a victory for Anne Rasmusson, a one-time St. Paul and Eden Prairie officer who is pursuing the state’s most expansive lawsuit relating to misuse of driver and vehicle services data. She claims cops routinely looked at her DVS file, which includes photographs, addresses, physical descriptions, driving records and other personal information.
The St. Paul City Council will vote Wednesday on whether to grant Rasmusson a $385,000 settlement. Jon Iverson, an attorney representing all other cities in the case except Minneapolis and St. Paul, said they have agreed to settle for $280,000.
