Manpower, Inc. v. Brawdy – Case Brief Summary (Oklahoma)

In Manpower, Inc. v. Brawdy (2002 OK CIV APP 122, 62 P3d 391, 392-393 [Okla Ct Civ App 2002], the court expressly refused to "equate the seeking and obtaining of medical treatment to spoliation of evidence."

The court thus held that a workers' compensation claimant's back surgery could not constitute spoliation of evidence and added that no case or authority has been cited "nor has our research found any case, in which the seeking and receiving of medical treatment has been deemed to be a wrongful destruction of evidence." Id. at 392.)
