Attorneys: “Devastating Betrayal” Exposed By Christmas Gift Ancestry.com Kit; Further Testing Confirmed Sperm Used in Botched Procedure Was From Another Patient of Doctor at the Time.
AKRON, OH///FEBRUARY 2, 2022///Former fertility patients of Dr. Nicholas J. Spirtos at Summa Health System filed a major new lawsuit after a shocking revelation was discovered by an Ancestry.com DNA test. The couple had undergone an insemination procedure intended to fertilize the wife’s egg with the husband’s sperm. But due to an apparent mix-up of sperm samples, their daughter is not biologically related to the man who raised her. Attorneys for the family at the law firm Peiffer Wolf Carr Kane Conway & Wise (Peiffer Wolf) said further testing indicated the sperm came from a different patient of Spirtos.
The lawsuit was filed today in the Court of Common Pleas, Summit County, Ohio, against Summa Health System, Nicholas J. Spirtos, D.O. and Nicholas J. Spirtos, D.O., Inc.
