Publisher Description

This is an original proceeding in mandamus instituted here. The determinative question is, once issue has been joined in a
personal injury damage suit as to the extent of plaintiff's injuries, can the defendant obtain for discovery purposes, medical
and hospital records, over plaintiff's objection of privilege under § 491.060(5), V.A.M.S.? Plaintiffs in the damage suit from which this action in mandamus ensues, were involved in an automobile accident with relators
February 5, 1966. Plaintiffs filed suit for damages, Mrs. Renie for $45,000 for her injuries and Mr. Renie for $15,000 for
loss of services of his wife. In her petition Mrs. Renie alleged personal injuries "consisting of contusions, sprains, bruises,
lacerations, and abrasions upon and to said plaintiff's head, face, chin, neck, shoulders, arms, wrists, hands, back, spine,
chest, hips, knees, legs, ankles and feet, and internal organs". She alleged " shock to said plaintiff's entire nervous system,
including the nerves and nerve centers throughout her person, caused them to become diseased and all the functions thereof
impaired, and aggravating her previously existing nervous condition, and caused plaintiff to suffer from nervous tremors and
acute depression." Finally she alleged "hypotrophic changes in her spine and an aggravation of pre-existing arthritis and
neuritis." By their answer in the damage suit, relators denied these allegations.
