Minneapolis Looking to Settle With TV Anchor Who Sued City
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The city of Minneapolis is poised to pay $193,500 to settle a lawsuit filed by a TV anchor whose personal information was repeatedly looked up by police officers.
Alix Kendall's case is among many involving officers who clicked on the state's Driver and Vehicle Services database to look at photographs, addresses and driving records of dozens of Minnesotans, many of them local celebrities.
The Fox 9 morning show co-host sued. The Minneapolis City Council's ways and means committee on Tuesday approved paying her $150,000 plus $43,500 in attorney's fees. The settlement now goes to the full City Council for approval.
