    Sperm bank sued under product liability law

    There is a lot of irony in this story......

    If a different sperm had been used, then someone else would have been born, and she would not be alive to sue the sperm bank.

    That's gratitude for you.

    She should sue her mom, cause her mom contributed to her ****ed up genes just as much as the sperm from the donor.

    Maybe they should just toss out the defective product.

    FWIW, nothing about the judge's ruling appears to have indicated anything about the merits. It seems as if all he decided was that the case could proceed in NY instead of in PA, as the sperm bank had wanted.

    Article says they tested her mom and that she doesnít carry fragile X. Skimming the wikipedia article for fragile X, it says men who carry the gene have a crapload of defects that would be readily evident to anyone whose job was to screen for obvious genetic defects.

    Maybe Iím under a misconception here, but Iíve always thought that sperm banks made at least perfunctory efforts to avoid defective product. Donít they screen out Beavis and Butthead with physicals, questions about personal history and IQ tests? Arenít physical symptoms of retardation, like sloping foreheads and facial deformations, enough to make the receptionist turn them away before they even come close to a collection cup?

    Sounds like the clinic really dropped the ball when they let a retard contribute to their stock; I think this girl and her mother have every right to sue the clinic for such an egregious ****-up. If not, maybe Iíll go binge drinking for a week, roll around in a dumpster for a few days and then go contribute to a sperm bank.

    Maybe Mom was too cheap to buy the good stuff.

    This is why judges and lawyers will always be seen as scum. If its not dumbasses spilling coffee on themselves,fatasses suing McDonalds or criminal scum suing homeowners when they injure themselves in a burglary victim's home it is now this ****. Lawyers taking cases like these and judges allowing cases is why they are seen as the money grubbing scum they are.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
