SALT LAKE CITY – Four more lawsuits may soon be filed against the Utah Highway Patrol after Trooper Lisa Steed wrongfully handed out DUIs.

Michael Studebaker, attorney for the new clients, says each wants their record expunged, $250,000 per person and Steed stripped of her awards.

Steed has been in the spotlight since a memo leaked in mid-October suggesting she arrested people who didn’t deserve DUIs.

Steed’s attorney says she’s received a letter from UHP describing their intent to terminate her.
