Sofia Vergara has been battle her ex-Nick Loeb for years now over the use of their unborn embryos and the lawsuit just got weirder! It seems as though Loeb is trying every tactic to get the embryos born including giving them names–its two females —and filing a lawsuit against Vergara claiming the girls have a right to life and have a trust in their name in Louisiana.
According to Page Six, The female embryos are listed as plaintiffs “Emma’’ and “Isabella” in the Louisiana court papers a source said. Loeb is looking for legal protection of the frozen embryos who have listed trustee,’’ James Carbonnet, as a plaintiff, sources added. Louisiana was chosen for its traditionally pro-life stance on embryos.
The lawsuit requests that the frozen embryos be given to Loeb so they can be born and get the trust he has set up for them, which would care for their health care and education. The couple turned to in-vitro during their relationship but were unsuccessful and have since split. The former couple have been battling over the embryos ever since. Vergara wants to destroy the embryos since they are no longer a couple and Loeb still wants to attempt tp bring them to term.
I think Loeb has about stretched this as much as he can—I THINK ITS TIME TO MOVE ON!
“Next week the judge presiding over the case was to rule on Ms. Vergara’s request for sanctions against Mr. Loeb for refusing to comply with a court order, and on her motion for summary judgment-seeking dismissal of the case he filed against her, attempting to get control of pre-embryos that he created with Vergara. That genetic material was created pursuant to a written agreement that required both parties written consent to attempt to create a pregnancy. Apparently Mr. Loeb and his counsel, knowing that he was about to lose decided to attempt to save face by taking their proverbial ball and going home. Reports are out that Mr. Loeb has caused a lawsuit to be filed on behalf of the pre-embryos in Louisiana, essentially trying to get the same relief that he was trying to get through his failed legal attempt in California.”
“If these reports are true, this latest maneuver is nothing more than another attempt on the part of Loeb to keep himself in the public eye by keeping himself linked to Ms. Vergara. The media reports contend that Mr. Loeb has caused a lawsuit to be initiated claiming that the pre-embryos — which are not embryos, but rather frozen fertilized ova — have been given names by him and have a right to live. Loeb apparently thinks that he will garner sympathy from the public and the courts through this latest maneuver, one that we believe will also result in failure. It is unfortunate that Loeb feels the need to keep himself linked to Vergara, who is happily married, by taking up more of our overburdened courts resources, preventing judges from focusing on real legal problems. If it is really a family that Loeb wants, he should hire a surrogate and an egg donor and create one without dragging Vergara through another unnecessary legal battle.”
