Artificial Insemination Fertility Center Lawsuit

There is a Pacific Fertility Center lawsuit that has made its way to the US Supreme Court. The legal case involves the refusal of a Pacific Fertility Center to provide assisted fertility treatments to a woman who had used her own eggs in a failed attempt to conceive. The center argued that the woman was not a fit candidate for fertility treatment because she had already used her own eggs in a prior procedure. In rejecting the claim, the Supreme Court held that it could not have been shown that the patient’s eggs were improperly harvested or that she would be unable to succeed with fertility treatment on her own.

The underlying question in this case was whether or not a patient’s eggs were properly harvested.

This issue was addressed by the lower court, which found that the harvesting of eggs was proper according to medical standards. The Pacific Fertility Center challenged this conclusion and asked the court to reconsider its previous ruling. This motion was denied, but the Pacific Fertility Center appealed to the US Supreme Court. During the appeal process, the Supreme Court heard oral argument from Associate Justice John Paul Stevens.

During the oral argument, Stevens expressed some concerns regarding the way the Pacific Fertility Center handled its infertility cases, particularly the one from a woman who was not a “good candidate” for assisted conception.

Some of the points of contention included whether or not there was an error in procedure, whether or not the patient was capable of proving the negligence or misconduct of the staff, and whether or not damages could have been recovered. According to the majority of legal analysts, the ruling will likely be sustained. The ruling may still be tweaked a bit before it gets to the Supreme Court, but experts believe that most if not all of the objections will be dismissed.

The Pacific Fertility Center lawsuit was not the first of its kind. Another class action lawsuit was filed against the Pacific Fertility Center on behalf of other women who were injured at the same clinic.

The plaintiffs had claimed that they suffered injuries as a result of being exposed to negligent medical care and/or procedures at the Pacific Fertility Center. This case was eventually settled out of court. However, the lawsuit itself was considered a class action lawsuit and therefore received the status of a class action lawsuit when the plaintiff and defendants reached a settlement agreement. The settlement agreement was reached after both sides agreed to make financial payments to individuals who were involved in the lawsuit.

Many legal experts believe that the Pacific Fertility Center case may be the first of many such lawsuits against medical facilities that carry this type of malpractice liability.

As states are reviewing their statues of limitations for medical malpractice claims, the lawyers’ fees may become harder for individual patients to clear. If past cases can be used as precedent, the court’s ruling on the Pacific Fertility Center lawsuit may become precedent-setting for future plaintiffs. In the meantime, the plaintiffs will receive monetary compensation and the health of their embryos will not be destroyed.

For couples with infertility problems and egg freezing/hormone regulation issues, it is possible to artificially inseminate the female and male eggs at the Pacific Fertility Center, making them children.

After the artificial insemination is successful, the man and woman then need to wait a few months to a year until they are able to conceive naturally again using natural egg washing and ovulation monitoring. However, if either of the couple should have unprotected sex within the time frame of the artificial insemination, they may run the risk of conception blocking while the eggs are being processed and fertilized. If this happens, the embryos will not be developed and will not be able to be born.
