Eighteen people claim Minnesota government officials violated their privacy by looking up their driver's license records for non-work related reasons.

The group, all with ties to Wabasha County, is suing more than 70 different agencies across the state. They claim they were targeted because of their political activism. The lawsuit was just filed Thursday morning. The damage for each violation is a minimum award of $2,500.

One woman says her drivers license record looked up 63 times, 39 times by Wabasha Sheriff's office, Wabasha attorney's office or Wabasha police.
