The purchaser of a horse sold as a gelding tried to return the horse and get her money back when it turned out the horse still had intact testicles.
The court not only ordered the sale price be refunded, but also her vet and agistment fees incurred over several years while the vendor refused to accept the return of the horse.
This case was also interesting because it discussed how the Australian Consumer Law can be pleaded when it applies through State legislation (the Fair Trading Act) as well as through Commonwealth legislation (the Competition and Consumer Act).
List Member Angela Rae appeared for the successful purchaser/plaintiff.
