Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Duluth is one of 39 cities, counties and government bodies being sued by a woman who is claiming that these Minnesota agencies illegally viewed her driver's license information.

Kelli Marie Engebretson alleges that her driver's license was illegally viewed nearly 200 times between 2003 and 2012. The Duluth Attorney says the city has been served with a summons and complaint in the "Engebretson versus City of Bloomington, etc." case.

The woman claims Duluth police opened her records two times in April 2005 for unknown reasons. City attorney Gunnar Johnson says his office will review the allegations and respond within 21 days.

Johnson says over the past couple of years there has been a rash of these cases against every community in the state.
