Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association, Inc. v. United States Department of Transportation

Five commercial truck drivers cited for safety violations sue the feds, whose trucker database includes the citations but not the subsequent acquittals and dismissals of the same. Truckers: The feds won’t update the dated data, hurting our job prospects. District court: Cannot sue over that. D.C. Circuit: Two of the drivers can, as their records were shared with potential employers. The other three have not been harmed because the feds haven’t shared their data.
