I just found out that my ex boyfriend gave me genital herpes. when we were together he lied to me and said that he never had an std. after we broke up his ex girlfriend told me that while they were together he told her that someone from his past had given him an std. I want to know if i could file a civil suit against him or take him to small caims court for knowingly giving me herpes? if so, what do i need to do and how can i obtain his medical records to prove my case?
