St. Paul approves $385,000 settlement over officer's privacy claims

ST. PAUL — St. Paul's city council has approved a $385,000 settlement agreement with a former police officer who accused other officers of illegally accessing her driver's license information.

Anne Marie Rasmusson, who worked for Eden Prairie and St. Paul, filed a lawsuit, claiming more than 140 officers looked at her private data between 2005 and 2012 without a legitimate reason.

The suit cited the demotion of one Eden Prairie officer who encouraged subordinates to look up Rasmusson because she had an attractive new look.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports the council voted Wednesday to accept the settlement without discussion.

Her attorneys also expect her to receive $280,000 in a settlement with additional plaintiff cities other than Minneapolis, where her case is still pending.
