Asbestos disease expert wins right to obtain information held on him by lobbyist | The BMJ

A leading expert on asbestos related cancers has won a landmark Data Protection Act claim at the High Court against a lobbyist who accused him of giving fraudulent evidence in court cases and tried to get him struck off the medical register.1

Robin Rudd, a consultant physician specialising in respiratory diseases and cancer, has spent 35 years giving expert evidence in cases in which claimants have sought damages for mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis, and pleural disease allegedly caused by exposure to asbestos.
