Families Sue Sperm Bank Over 'Psychotic Donor'

Three families are suing a sperm bank and its distributor for allegedly telling them their donor was a genius - when in fact he'd several mental disorders and a criminal record.

At least thirty-six women in Britain, Canada and the US are thought to have got pregnant from the donor'south sperm over the last decade.

Presently three Canadian families have filed a lawsuit saying US-based Xytex Corporation and Ontario'south Outreach Health Services misled them.

"It'south horrifying," said lawyer James Fireman. "These couples were seeking assistance to construct a family and were very vulnerable, they keep their faith in the (cryobank) industry, and this happens."

The plaintiffs - whose allegations haven't been proven in court - are seeking $11.7m (£8.2m).

They declare the companies lied about the donor'south IQ, said he was extremely healthy and was doing a PhD in neuroscience engineering.

The families learned his true identity when Xytex inadvertently included his contact information in an email to them.

An internet look for and subsequent investigation revealed he was actually a 39-year-old GA man who'd been diagnosed with schizophrenia, narcissistic personality disorder, drug-induced psychotic disorder and significant grandiose delusions.

The man had been jailed for burglary and other crimes.

According to the claim, the companies continued to sell his sperm even after being informed of the discrepancies in 2014.
