CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

If you’ve ever received a traffic ticket in Cook County, your personal information could be a click away. 2 Investigator Brad Edwards sat down with Mary Nisi, the woman who’s suing Cook County Circuit Court Clerk Dorothy Brown in hopes of protecting your privacy.

Mary Nisi got a speeding ticket in Arlington Heights in 2005. Now, because of Cook County records practices, her personal information, such as her date of birth, address, license plate number, driver’s license number and more can be found in the Cook County clerk’s office by using public terminals available in the office.

“This information should always be under lock and key. It looks like there’s a big problem that needs to be examined.”

— Darren Guccione, Cyber-security expert, CEO Keeper Security Inc.

Anyone who has received a traffic ticket in Cook County might have their personal data at risk.

CBS Chicago Investigator Brad Edwards sat down with Mary Nisi, who is suing Cook County Circuit Court Clerk Dorothy Brown in hopes of protecting privacy for all citizens with a class action, injunctive relief lawsuit. Nisi’s attorney Steve Uhrich says the lawsuit asks a judge to order Brown to fix the problem, and Brown’s office was given until August 8, 2018 to respond.

Nisi’s lawsuit accuses Cook County Circuit Court Clerk Dorothy Brown of violating the federal Driver’s Privacy Protection Act. The law, passed in 1994, prevents the disclosure of personal information found in state motor vehicle records. Driver’s Privacy Protection Act was enacted after the 1989 murder of sitcom star Rebecca Schaeffer by a stalker who found the her personal data via motor vehicle records.

“Almost anyone who has received a traffic ticket in Cook County is impacted by this,” according to Nisi’s attorney Steve Uhrich.

Brad Edwards joined Uhrich at the clerk’s office computers at the Daley Center and found the personal information of Mayor Rahm Emanuel; Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart; Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle and more.

CBS Chicago discovered neighboring counties, such as DuPage, Lake and Will, make available the same personal information at their public terminals.
