Judge rules in case damaged tails – Schelstraete Equine Lawyers (EUAEL Alliance Partner)

On April 24, 2014, the Amsterdam District Court ruled in a remarkable case about the damaged tails of five horses. The owner of these horses started a lawsuit against the owner of the horse who has caused this damage.  The court ruled that it was proved that the horse of the defendant, had eaten the tails of the five horses. According to Article 6:179 of Dutch BW, defendant is therefore liable for the resulting damages caused by his horse. Concerning the amount of damage, both parties are still litigating.
