LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – A woman who declared herself the “escort queen” of a sex scandal involving the University of Louisville’s basketball team says a motel posted her driver’s license online.

The Courier Journal reports Powell filed suit this week, saying a motel employee sent a copy of Powell’s driver’s license to someone who posted it online. It says Powell was a guest at the time and the post included her address, health restrictions and birthday.

The newspaper says the motel’s address in the lawsuit matches the address of Clarke’s Motel on Dixie Highway.

Powell is suing motel owners Cecil Romans and Susan Roszella and worker Tara Harmon. The lawsuit also accuses Brad Harmon, who it says may have been a motel employee.

The newspaper says the defendants didn’t respond to requests for comment.
