According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Nick Loeb is suing the ART Reproductive Center for medical negligence and fraud. The ART Reproductive Center is the facility where Sofia and Nick stored frozen embryos.
Sofia and Nick have been involved in dueling lawsuits for years. During their relationship, Sofia and Nick decided to freeze embryos in case they wanted to have children. The contract they signed states both parties must agree before the embryos can be brought to life. Sofia and Nick broke up without ever having used the embryos.
After their split, Nick went on a lawsuit spree and filed multiple cases against Sofia in different states. The gist was he wanted to bring the embryos to life without Sofia’s consent. All of his lawsuits have been dismissed by the court. He was scolded by a Louisiana judge for even bringing the case in the state.
Sofia filed a separate lawsuit against Nick and The ART Reproductive Center, which is still pending in Los Angeles Superior Court. She is asking the judge to order the embryos cannot be brought to life without her consent. The case is headed to trial.
In the newly filed lawsuit, Nick argues the reason for him wanting to bring the embryos to life is his pro-life and pro-parenthood stance. He claims to believe “life begins at the moment an egg is fertilized by a sperm.”
In the lawsuit. Nick says he chose ART with Sofia and they started the process. He claims they chose a surrogate to implant the first embryo. However, the surrogate did not carry the child to term. Before they brought any to life they ended their relationship.
Nick accuses ART of not providing him with the proper paperwork which led to his numerous legal battles with Sofia. He says, “The Form Directive did not provide the Plaintiff and Ms. Vergara with the opportunity to make any decisions about what would happen to their embryos, except in the event of the death of either one or both of them. Specifically, the Form Directive did not provide the Plaintiff and Ms. Vergara with the opportunity to decide what would happen to their embryos in the event they separated. The Form Directive did not allow them to decide what would happen if the embryos were abandoned or if storage fees went unpaid.
He is suing for unspecified damages and attorney fees.
