*** begin quote ***

Audit: Florida law-enforcement officers accessed the state’s motor-vehicle database over 500 times for a glimpse of a female (former) deputy’s personal information. Eleventh Circuit: The statute of limitations began to run when the (alleged) violations occurred, not when plaintiffs found out about them. So this suit (one of many) is dismissed.
