The Driver’s Privacy Protection Act (“DPPA”) prohibits a person from obtaining or disclosing personal information from the State DMV records for any use not permitted under the Act. Jack Levy and Chin See Ming’s client had bought, from the Oregon Department of Transportation, DMV records for use in the client’s background screening business. The plaintiffs in a multi-billion dollar class action suit alleged that our client obtained over 12 million pieces of DMV information in violation of the DPPA and sought $2,500 for each violation.
Smith Freed Eberhard and the client strongly believed that the client’s use of the information in the DMV records was wholly proper under the DPPA and asked the court to dismiss the complaint due to plaintiffs’ inability to allege any improper use by the client.
The court agreed and dismissed the complaint with prejudice. It was yet another example of the Smith Freed Eberhard commitment to only the best results for its clients.
