Successfully Resolved Dispute Arising From Purchase of Unfit Horse

Hodgson Russ represented a horse owner in a dispute with his agent arising from the purchase of a horse unfit for the reason purchased. The agent failed to disclose the lameness of the horse that was uncovered during a veterinary pre-purchase exam. The lameness was disclosed by the veterinarian on the pre-purchase examination report, but the agent withheld the report and misrepresented the condition of the horse in order to obtain a finder’s fee. We successfully resolved the dispute prior to litigation.
