The Third District denied certiorari regarding financial information as to the relationship between a non-party insurer and a physician-expert. The matter arose out of a motor vehicle accident wherein Plaintiff sought the Defendant’s insurance company’s relationship with Defendant’s compulsory medical examiner, which were both non-parties to the litigation.
The 3d DCA Per Curiam affirmed. Judge Miller in concurring noted “the concern that we are again placing our imprimatur on the procedural mechanism engaged for obtaining the information sought here, and to further reiterate the apprehension that the decision by our high court in Worley has given rise to “seemingly disparate treatment in personal injury litigation between plaintiffs and defendants.” Younkin v. Blackwelder, 44 Fla. L. Weekly D549, at D550 (Fla. 5th DCA Feb. 22, 2019), review granted No. SC19-385 (Fla. May 21, 2019) (citation omitted).
