The 37-year-old Karl had filed a lawsuit after he became legally obliged to provide child support following the birth of his son by his 42-year-old ex-wife.
A regional court from the southern German city of Munich ruled on Wednesday in which he must provide financial support for his child who had been born without his explicit consent.
In his lawsuit, Karl argued in which he should not be legally obliged to pay child support because he had revoked his permission for the eggs to be used after he split by his wife. He also argued in which the clinic should take over financial support for the child.
yet the court ruled against him after finding in which Karl was not clear enough when he called the clinic to revoke his consent for the fertilized eggs to be used. The clinic, This particular added, had no reason to doubt the authenticity of the forged signatures.
The decision, made by the court’s medical malpractice section, can be not legally binding.
