Sofia Vergara’s Ex wants to stop her from testifying in the Embryo Lawsuit

-

Since 2015, Sofia Vergara has been wrapped up in the legal proceedings of her ex-fiancé, Nick Loeb. In a new bizarre development, Loeb’s legal team is trying to prevent Vergara from taking the stand. Here’s what we know about Loeb’s latest lawsuit.

Loeb filed multiple law suits against Vergara

Sofia Vergara was engaged to Nick Loeb in 2012. They tried unsuccessfully to have a child during their time together. They tried in-vitro fertilization through ART Reproductive Services LLC. The couple’s efforts to conceive via surrogate were ultimately futile. The facility still holds two embryos from the former couple. They have been fighting over who gets the embryos since their 2014 split.

What’s since ensued is a bizarre custody battle of sorts. It’s also a staggering example of how the pro-life perspective plays into modern fertility science. 2015 Loeb has filed a lawsuitVergara could not destroy the embryos. After it came out in court that two of Loeb’s ex-girlfriends had undergone abortions, Vergara’s legal team demanded their identities so they could probe the women’s motivations for undergoing the procedures. Loeb dropped the suit instead of giving up his exes’ names.

In 2016, the following was also possible Loeb sued Vergarafor the right of the embryos to be used as he wishes. It was even more bizarre that he also filed the lawsuit on behalf the embryos not yet implanted. Louisiana law allows anyone to file a lawsuit for the sake of an embryo, unborn child or other person. Loeb filed the lawsuit in the southern state on behalf Vergara “Emma and Isabella,”Names he gave to frozen embryos for their inability to be born.

It was a bizarre appropriation of the pro-life state’s “right-to-life”Laws that allow men to sue women they have conceived for having an abortion are now in force. Louisiana Judge dismissed the case, saying that the state didn’t have jurisdiction over embryos conceived and living in California.

Nick Loeb Supports The Fertility Clinic

Loeb has filed a new legal document against ART Reproductive Services LLC. This is the clinic’s fertility clinic. The reasons? Well, Loeb’s legal team asserts that the clinic violated California’s Health & Safety Code by neglecting to file an agreement between Vergara and Loeb dictating what would happen to their embryos if they were to separate or if they failed to pay the clinic’s storage fees.

Vergara & Loeb had a 2013 contract that stipulated that neither Loeb or Vergara could use embryos without their written consent. Loeb claimed in 2021 that he signed the agreement under duress and that it should be void. Vergara also claimed that Loeb and he had an independent, binding verbal agreement in which he could place the embryos in a surrogate.

Unsurprisingly, the judge dismissed Loeb’s motion due to a lack of evidence. However, Loeb is now going after the clinic for not drafting its own official medical agreement over the fate of the embryos in the event of Loeb and Vergara’s separation. Of course, the couple’s already-existing legal agreement over the same matter makes the efficacy of Loeb’s motion a bit questionable.

Loeb’s legal team interjects that Vergara’s testimony on this matter would be irrelevant because their personal agreement was not filed through the clinic. Therefore, Loeb asserts that the clinic still breached the state’s Health & Safety Code. His Lawyers also insistVergara would bias a jury.

“Ms. Vergara is a highly loved and well-known celebrity who has 26.8 million-plus followers on Instagram,” Loeb’s legal team states in their court papers. The lawyers also attest that Vergara’s testimony would no doubt showcase her “anger, hatred. and dislike”For him and would “taint him in the eyes of the jury with a star power that he could not mitigate.”

It’s unclear in which direction this particular case is skewed. Unlike Loeb’s other legal filings, the outcome of this lawsuit will not give him permission to implant his and Vergara’s embryos in a surrogate. Instead, the filing seeks financial compensation for harm caused by the clinic’s alleged negligence. No matter how it plays out, it’s sure to incite controversy on both sides. Loeb’s legal drama has already been precedent-setting, so we’ll certainly be keeping an eye on where the case goes from here.
