I am wondering if I should file with HR or talk to a lawyer. I do not want the person in trouble however I am embarrassed that she showed everyone how to look up court case history and then proceeded to look up mine in front of about 8 co workers.
It's a public record so they can certainly pull the information up. You can report it to HR for wasting time at work, but based on what you've posted there is nothing actionable to do against your co-worker.
Because a court record is a public record there is no legal case you bring against the person who showed your information to co workers. However, you can report he incident to HR and depending on the regulations they have for employee conduct they may be disciplined.
