Jennifer Brandt a Guest on Dr. Drew Midday Live with Lauren Sivan

Thursday, April 5, 2018

Jennifer Brandt, co-chair of the Firm's Family Law Practice, spoke on Dr. Drew Midday Live with Lauren Sivan about the woman whose DNA test revealed her father was her parents’ fertility doctor. Kelli Rowlette's results from an DNA test showed that her DNA matched a sample from her parent's obstetrician. Her mother’s fertility doctor had allegedly used his own sperm to get her pregnant with Rowlette. Rowlette filed a lawsuit accusing Gerald E. Mortimer, a now-retired obstetrician-gynecologist in Idaho Falls, of fraud and medical negligence, among other things. The lawsuit claims that when Mortimer performed the procedure in the summer of 1980, he used his own sperm and did not match the couple’s specifications.The family is suing Mortimer and Obstetrics and Gynecology Associates of Idaho Falls, accusing them of medical negligence, fraud, battery, negligent infliction of emotional distress and breach of contract.
