Mental health records allowed in lawsuit against Terri Horman

Posted: Updated:

A protective order issued in the lawsuit filed by Kyron Horman's mother against Terri Horman said mental health records can be used in the case.

The records, however, will not be made public.

The lawsuit was filed by Desiree Young against Kyron's stepmother in June 2012. The boy has been missing since June 4, 2010.

The protective order filed in Multnomah County Circuit Court said any medical records, including but not limited to mental health records, can be used by the prosecution or the defense.

The protective order mandates any such records be sealed in an envelope at the conclusion of the litigation if they are retained in either attorney's files.

They then cannot be reopened except in connection with a subsequent legal malpractice action or other legal proceeding directly related to the current case.

Police said Terri Horman was the last person to see Kyron, but no arrests have ever been made in the case.

Young's lawsuit accused Terri Horman of taking or hurting the boy.
