Virginia company sues over Mo. records fees
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- A Virginia company hired to overhaul the computer system for Missouri's driver's license and motor vehicle records has filed a lawsuit challenging a new state law capping fees for buying those records.
The suit filed by BearingPoint Inc. is another round in the wrangling that has followed the Missouri Department of Revenue's decision to charge $7 per driver's license or motor vehicle record.
Businesses regularly buy the records to track vehicle histories and traffic violations, then sell that information to used car dealers, insurance companies and other entities.
BearingPoint contends that the price limit is unconstitutional because it wrongly mixes multiple subjects within the same bill.
The case is BearingPoint Inc. vs. Missouri, 08AC-CC00612.
