Sofia Vergara wins the frozen embryo dispute

Sofia Vergara (48) can look forward to another triumph in this lengthy quarrel. The actress and her ex-fiancé Nick Loeb (45) had eggs from the Modern Family actress fertilized in 2013 and then frozen. After their separation the following year, however, a heated argument broke out over the embryos. Because the businessman wanted the latter to be carried to term by a surrogate mother without the consent of his ex. A court banned him from doing so back in 2017 – but this decision didn’t stop him from filing a lawsuit. However, this has now also been rejected.

Nick had in Louisiana – a US state where neither he nor Sofia ever lived – tried to take advantage of a special law of the state on the subject of artificial insemination. The court there saw through this insidious trick and dismissed his complaint. “His behavior brings the Louisiana legal system […] in disrepute and makes it a mockery. Besides, it’s hideous “, it says in the judgment that Page Six is present.

Despite the renewed defeat wants Nick do not give up. Like his lawyer did People-Magazine announced that he would appeal. Indeed Sofia is said to have already submitted documents to deny her ex-partner’s legal counsel the opportunity to practice in Louisiana. If her application is granted, the “Miss Bodyguard” star could stop the appeal process directly.
