Craigslist Sperm Donor Case Continues

GavelAs I have previously discussed, the state of Kansas asserts Marotta owes child support to the 4-year-old daughter of two women who enlisted Marotta through Craigslist to provide sperm for the couple. The arguments presented focus on if Marotta is legally considered the sperm donor or father of the four year old.

 

Both sides have filed summary judgment motions, after a hearing Judge Mary Mattivi stated she would issue a ruling. Marotta claims he never intended to be the girl’s father and signed a contract terminating his rights.
