Louisiana Man Sues Clinic, Says Ex Stole Sperm

In a bizarre lawsuit, a Louisiana man claims a vengeful ex-girlfriend duped a sperm bank into handing over his specimens, which she then turned into a bouncing baby boy. Louisiana's Layne Hardin is suing the fertility clinic over an "utter lack of safeguards and protections," along with his ex, reports ABC News. Hardin has never met the now 2-year-old boy, but his lawyer fears he will be asked to pay child support.
