Disclosure of Clinical Records Application Success

Success at Birmingham County Court recently for a client who had requested a pony's clinical history having been told by people who knew the pony before purchase, that it has a propensity to rear and had been medicated into the spine and stifles as a result. The pony was sold as 100% safe for a child and with no pre-existing lameness or other health problems.

The seller refused disclosure of the clinical history forcing the purchaser to make an Application to the Court for an Order for Pre-Action Disclosure. District Judge Musgrave Ordered disclosure of the clinical history and x-rays within 14 days and the seller was also ordered to pay the purchaser's costs of the application.
