Court of Appeals Finds In-Camera Inspection Necessary Before Plaintiff Compelled to Sign Global Release

In Collins v. Interim Health Care of Columbus, 2014-Ohio-40, the claimant appealed additional conditions to the court pursuant to R.C. 4123.512.  During the discovery phase of the case, the Bureau sent the claimant a global release for medical records, which she refused to sign.  The trial court granted the Bureau’s motion to compel the claimant’s signature on the releases.  However, the court of appeals reversed, finding the trial court was required to hold an in-camera inspection to determine what, if any, records were historically and causally related to the claim.  Click here to read the full decision.
