Hagyard, Veterinarians Named In Radiograph Suit File Motion To Dismiss

Hagyard Equine Medical Institute, along with four individual veterinarians employed by the practice, have filed motions to dismiss the latest civil suit against them, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader. Earlier this year, Keeneland customer Tom Swearingen sued Hagyard and four of its veterinarians, together with accounting/logistics company Dean Dorton Allen Ford and up to 100 unidentified co-defendants, for misdating radiographs on horses bound for sale at the auction house.

The motions claim Swearingen cannot prove any of the 24 horses he purchased between 2007 and 2016 had radiographs that were misdated, and that misdating the radiographs by a few days would not change the accuracy of their representation to buyers.

A memo from Hagyard attorneys in support of a motion to dismiss stated owner/breeder Swearingen “seeks to get attention through hyperbole and mock outrage, but when this artifice is ignored, it is clear he has not suffered any injury which he can demonstrate was caused by HDM.”

Keeneland is not named in the suit.
