More Court Rulings Conceivable

Sperm donor for lesbian couple’s baby ordered by court to pay child support, vows to fight ruling A Kansas judge has decided that a contract between William Marotta, Angela Bauer and Jennifer Schreiner is void because the insemination wasn’t performed by a licensed physician. - Adam Edelman, New York Daily News

Blues recording artist Percy Sledge is vowing to fight a court order he pay 250 million in back child support on behalf of thousands of children conceived between 1966 and 1968 to the tune of Sledge's hit single, "When a Man Loves a Woman."  "Except in cases where a licensed physician had played the music," the court ruled, "Mr. Sledge is clearly a party to the pregnancy."

Randy "Doc" Maloof, Panama City Beach bartender, faces a court order to pay an unspecified amount of child support for his role in thirty or more pregnancies.  "His invention, the Tequila Fanny Banger, is directly responsible for a sudden surge in unplanned births in December of 2008, babies conceived during Spring Break of 2008," a judge ruled.  "Furthermore, his license as a 'Mixologist,' does not qualify him as a bona-fide physician, his nickname notwithstanding."

The heirs of Moses "Moe" Nadler, founder of the Canadian Corset Company, face a court judgement for tens of millions of dollars in child support because of Nadler's 1935 patent of an underwire push-up brassiere commonly known as "The Wonderbra."  "Although substantially increasing the sexual attractiveness of relatively flat-chested woman," a judge ruled, "it is not a medical device, nor is there any reason to believe these garments were put on with a doctor's supervision."
