A Japanese woman who wanted another child decided to look for a sperm donor after finding out that her husband carried a hereditary disorder that could be passed to his offspring. She found a successful Japanese man with a prestigious Kyoto University education and had sex with him 10 times until she conceived.
After she was pregnant, she found out the man had lied; he was actually a married Chinese man who didn’t attend Kyoto University. After discovering the truth, she put the baby up for adoption and has now sued the man for fraud and emotional distress; she’s asking for $2.86 million in damages. There isn’t a public or legal system for sperm donation in Japan according to the woman’s lawyer.
